      Abstract

      During December 1973, the Naval Oceanographie Offirc (NAVOCKANO) and the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) conducted a joint remote-sensing experiment over the sea-ice fields off Scoresby Sound on the east coast of Greenland using NAVOCEANO’s RP3-A Birdseye aircraft, laser profiler, and infrared scanner, and NRL’s 19.34 and 31.0 GHz nadir-looking radiometers. The objectives of this mission were: (1) to develop skills for interpreting sea-ice passive microwave data. (2) to expand, if possible, the two-category capability (multi-year ice and first-year ice) of passive microwave sensors over sea ice, (3) to compare two frequencies (19 and 31 GHz) to determine which may be more useful in a scanning radiometer now under development at NRL, and (4) to determine the value of multi-frequency as compared to single-frequency study of sea ice.
