PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF LASER TERRAIN PROFILES OF SEA ICE SURFACES

The paper describes the results of a preliminary analysis of laser terrain profile data obtained with coincident photography from an altitude of 1000 feet over the sea ice fields of the Beaufort Sea in April 1968. Analysis of the data reveals that sea ice surface roughness and the nature of the roughness and relative surface reflectivities, which are both manifested in the laser terrain profile, can be used to interpret the categorical stages of ice development.
