Study of iceberg B10A using scatterometer data
The Antarctic continent continually releases glacial ice into the ocean in the form of icebergs calving from glaciers and ice shelves. Microwave scatterometers can provide useful information about the spatial and temporal behavior of large icebergs. In this paper, results from the observation of B10A during 1992-2000, using ERS-1/2 AMI Scatterometer (ESCAT), NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) and SeaWinds on QuikScat (QSCAT) data are presented. Multi-sensor analysis shows a general consistency of C-band σ0 measurements from ESCAT and Ku-band σ0 measurements from NSCAT and SeaWinds. Certain subtle differences are observed which reflect the frequency dependence of iceberg σ0 measurements.
