Fall AGU Session: C034, Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: Sea Ice

Walt Meier
Hello fellow sea ice remote sensing folks:

Please consider submitting an abstract our Fall AGU session:

C034: Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: Sea Ice

Sea ice is at the interface between the atmosphere and the ocean and it plays a major role in the Earth's climate system. Sea ice changes in the Arctic and Antarctic occur at large and small spatial scales, and with a wide temporal window from seconds to years. Remote sensing methods can provide data at all these scales and the range of different techniques available (e.g., microwave, visible, and infrared; active and passive; polarimetric, interferometric and hyperspectral, etc.) has made remote sensing a fundamental tool for the study of sea ice and its geophysical properties. This session aims to share recent progress made in the development and application of spaceborne, airborne, and ground-based remote sensing techniques to study sea ice. It will bring together presentations on remote sensing analysis, and how remote sensing can advance model evaluations, process studies, and interdisciplinary investigation at the ocean, cryosphere, and atmosphere interface.
