A four-channel multispectral radar was used to obtain data on freshwater ice. The study reported in this paper consists of radar data collection, (visual) analysis of these data and the continuing development of the proper ground truth techniques to be used in conjunction with such remotely sensed data. The in situ measurement of the electrical properties together with the determination of the physical properties of the ice (thickness, bottom and top roughness, stratification) appear to warrant further consideration. The documentation of radar energy penetration through the lake ice and its subsequent reflection from the bottom (ice-water) interface is considered to be one of the major contributions of this paper. The importance of using multichannel radar imagery for such studies is also noted.
