Southern ocean sea-ice morphology and kinematicsA pilot satellite experiment is described which would employ shuttle imaging radar (SIR) to determine the applicability of imaging radar for the description of sea ice type and movement. The experimental objectives, design, and anticipated results are discussed. The results are expected to constitute an important contribution to the understanding of the role of sea ice in air-sea interactions in polar regions. It is proposed that shuttle photography, thematic mapper imagery, and SIR data be utilized in this remote sensing project.
