SOME PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF 1971 AIRCRAFT MICROWAVE MEASUREMENTS OF ICE IN THE BEAUFORT SEA

Passive microwave data in the 2.8-cm (10.69 GHz) wavelength region were acquired from a NASA aircraft during the 1971 Arctic Ice Dynamics Joint Experiment (AIDJEX). Comparison of data obtained on a cloud-free day and on a day with a complete cloud cover beneath the aircraft demonstrated that the relative age of sea ice may be observed and mapped adequately by microwave sensing from satellite altitudes regardless of cloud cover.
