Abstract

Electrically Scanning Microwave Radiometer data for 'winter' months, November 1973 to April 1974, and for 'summer', May to October 1974, are used to examine the synoptic scale sea ice-atmosphere interactions. The synoptic scale variability in the microwave brightness temperatures and sea level atmospheric pressure and temperature is examined through the use of principal components analysis. Changes occurring in the ice ablation season are found to be responsible for much of the variance in the data.-from Author
