Cryospheric and Polar Processes Seminar: Garrett Campbell
Sea Ice in the 1960's from Satellites
by Dr. Garrett Campbell - NSIDC/CIRES, University of Colorado Boulder
I will review the Nimbus 1 to 4 observations from visible imagery. This will include description of the raw observations and methods for detecting sea ice. Then I will talk about interesting features of the sea ice distribution in both the Arctic and Antarctic. Mention will also be made of observations by the first NOAA satellite: ESSA 1 which collected it's first data exactly 50 years ago.
