The capabilities of four remote sensors - panoramic camera, thermal infrared scanner, laser profiler and side-looking airborne radar - were examined to determine level of ice detail of code, individually and in combination. Textual descriptions of each sensor's ability to detect sea and fast ice conditions and phenomena are presented, along with photographic examples of ice types depicted on each sensor's record. Color illustrations reproduced in black and white.
