Ice Thickness

These images compare Sentinel SAR (synthetic aperture radar) imagery and observations by ICESat-2. (a) shows altitudes near Ellesmere Island on 1 December 2018. (b) shows altitudes in the Weddell Sea on 29 October 2018. ΔT is the time difference between the Sentinel image and the ICESat‐2 overpass. Yellow arrows highlight examples of floe edges. Red bars are examples of floe size (Copernicus Sentinel Imagery 2019, processed by ESA). –Credit: Kwok et al. 2019.
