  • 2. Norwegian Meteorological Institute - MET Norway Ice Service


In this work, we present the setup and results of supervised ice type mapping from Sentinel-1 in support of the CIRFA-22 cruise on RV Kronprins Haakon in April and May 2022.

We outline technical details of the data processing and transfer to the vessel, evaluate classification results in comparison with in-situ observations, and show how the satellite products can were used for tactical navigation during the expedition.

The main presentation is provided in pdf format.
Small gif files that were embedded in the original pptx presentation added separately.
