Paper Abstract

The analysis performed in this paper is based on only two fully polarimetric airborne C- and L-band SAR images acquired over the Baltic Sea. The polarimetric discriminants computed from these two scenes are compared shortly with the corresponding results obtained in the Arctic conditions. Then the properties of the polarimetric discriminants as sea ice type classifiers are investigated. The backscatter coefficients with one polarization act as reference discriminants. The comparison between these two classifier sets is carried out with coarse resolution data.
