Consolidating ICESat-2 Ocean Wave Characteristics with CryoSat-2 during the CRYO2ICE Campaign

2022 Remote Sensing  
In this paper, we consolidate the ICESat-2 ocean observations by comparing the significant wave height (SWH) with coincident CryoSat-2 radar observations during the CRYO2ICE campaign from August 2020 to  ...  The SWH observed from ICESat-2 is found to agree with observations from CryoSat-2, with limitations due to changes in the sea state between the satellite observations.  ...  Acknowledgments: We thank the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and the Radar Altimeter Database System (RADS) for distributing the satellite altimetry data, and the North West Shelf Data  ...

Retrieval and parameterisation of sea-ice bulk density from airborne multi-sensor measurements

Arttu Jutila, Stefan Hendricks, Robert Ricker, Luisa von Albedyll, Thomas Krumpen, Christian Haas
2022 The Cryosphere  
We find a negative-exponential relationship between sea-ice bulk density and sea-ice freeboard and apply this parameterisation to one winter of monthly gridded CryoSat-2 sea-ice freeboard data.  ...  Our sea-ice density measurements are based on over 3000 km of high-resolution collocated airborne sea-ice and snow thickness and freeboard measurements in the western Arctic Ocean in 2017 and 2019.  ...  Some constraints of the current products will be reduced by near-realtime dual-altimetry acquisitions, such as the resonance of the CryoSat-2 and ICESat-2 satellite orbits (CRYO2ICE) since July 2020, and  ...
