C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images from the 2009 CASIE experiment
In 2009 BYU flew a microASAR as part of the CASIE experiment
on a Sierra UAV over the Arctic Ocean north of Svalbard Island .
Over 17 hours of data were collected at resolution of better
than 1 m and a swath with of 1 km. The radar was right-looking
and due to the low alittude images span from 0 deg incidence angle
at near-swath to over 85 deg at far swath.The aircraft flew long
transects out to the edge of the sea ice, then flew "racetrack"
patterns over the Marginal Ice Zone.
Here we provide a few image examples in KMZ form suitable
for viewing in GoogleEarth. Some of these images overlap. Details
of the processing are given in . Note that these are
uncalibrated images and that no gain correction
for aircraft roll has been applied.
A sample of raw SAR data can be obtained from
Sample microASAR on CASIE-2009 KMZ files
