AbstractOne first year ridge representative of the ridges characterized during a field program off West Coast Newfoundland in March 1999 is used to develop a comprehensive methodology for on-ice SAR validation studies. This validation study includes measurements such as the temperature, salinity, density, microstructure and in situ confined compressive strength of the ice. A RADARSAT-1 ScanSAR scene is used to illustrate how the ice properties influence the microwave signature of ridged ice and to determine the feasibility of using ScanSAR images for ridge identification. Analysis showed that ScanSAR scenes could be used successfully to identify areas of deformed ice.
