AbstractIn order to evaluate the utility of remote sensing methods for the detection and identification of ice flaws, a series of research flights was conducted using a high resolution thermal infrared scanner and an impulse radar from airborne platforms. The airborne data missions were then compared with surface truth observations. This paper will discuss the results of that research and present examples of the specific ice features that were clearly identified by the remote sensing technique.
