About the CS+AO Project

To develop, inter-compare and validate multiple approaches to sea surface height and sea ice thickness retrieval on Antarctic sea ice. The approaches to be considered in this proposal are:
a. Novel LRM/SAR/SARIN methods for leads, polynyas, open ocean and sea ice classification
b. Along-track processors over leads, polynyas and open ocean for sea surface estimation
c. Along-track processors over sea ice floes for sea ice thickness estimation
d. Pan-Antarctic gridded products of dynamic ocean topography and geostrophic currents (along with secondary products: EKE, upwelling, etc)
e. Pan-Antarctic gridded products of sea ice thickness
f. Preliminary inter-comparison of along-track and gridded products developed in steps b-e
g. Validation over selected tracks and key regions against in-situ and airborne data.
