This booklet reports contemporary advances within the use of SAR imagery for operational purposes and for assisting technology investigations of the polar oceans. the real parameters which might be extracted from spaceborne SAR imagery are mentioned. Algorithms utilized in such analyses are defined and information platforms utilized in generating the ocean ice items are provided.

Discrete occasion platforms: research and keep an eye on is the complaints of WODES2000 (the fifth Workshop on Discrete occasion structures, held in Ghent, Belgium, on August 21-23, 2000). This ebook offers a survey of the present cutting-edge within the box of modeling, research and keep an eye on synthesis of discrete occasion platforms, lecture notes for a mini path on sensitivity research for functionality evaluate of timed discrete occasion platforms, and forty eight conscientiously chosen papers protecting all parts of discrete occasion concept and an important purposes domain names.
This court cases quantity includes 32 articles on a number of fascinating parts of present-day useful research and its purposes: Banach areas and their geometry, operator beliefs, Banach and operator algebras, operator and spectral idea, Frechet areas and algebras, functionality and series areas. The authors have taken a lot care with their articles and plenty of papers current vital effects and techniques in energetic fields of study.

3 GHz) from the snow volume during this period. Within first-year sea ice, microwave scattering appears to be dominated by a combination of basal layer volume scattering and ice surface scattering. During this period we would expect to find a significant difference in solar noon versus solar midnight observations, as small amounts of water in liquid phase would contribute to grain growth and the elevated temperatures would significantly increase the brine volume of the ice surface and snow basal layer.
The columnar-oriented crystals occur at deeper levels and are a result of the ice growing under the quiescent conditions of a frazil or shuga layer of new ice. G. BARBER, A. N. PAPAKYRIAKOU 30 ppt at the ice-ocean interface]. 96 g·cm-3• Liquid brine is interspersed through the ice as intercrystalline brine inclusions and brine drainage channels. The brine inclusions are generally formed in the orientation of growth (vertical) or directed according to the predominant ocean current (Vant et al. 1978).
11, 13, the image and output are characterized by fewer large floes, with an increased relative fraction of smaller floes and water/ice mixture as well. This follows the intuitive trend over the summer season of floes becoming smaller with melting, which is also reflected by the relative increase in water/ice mixture or subpixel size floes. Also, the bright open water provides good contrast with the surrounding ice and in this case is also segmented quite accurately. The algorithm has particular difficulty in at least two situations, when the radar signature of the ice pack is bright, and when analyzing imagery from the marginal ice zone.
