Abstract

Data derived from the Nimbus-7 SMMR are discussed and the types of problems users have with satellite data are documented. The development of software for assessing the SMMR data is mentioned. Two case studies were conducted to verify the SMMR-derived sea ice concentrations and multi-year ice fractions. The results of a survey of potential users of SMMR data are presented, along with SMMR-derived sea ice concentration and multiyear ice fraction maps. The interaction of the Arctic atmosphere with the ice was studied using the Nimbus-7 SMMR. In addition, the characteristics of ice in the Arctic ocean were determined from SMMR data.-from STAR, 22(22) , 1984
