Abstract

The information content retrievable from ENVISAT ASAR cross-polarization data is evaluated with respect to seat ice monitoring. Low backscatter from sea ice and open water in combination with variations in the NESZ pose challenges for data visualization and classification. A novel classification scheme based on parallel Wishart classifiers for single and dual polarization data is introduced that allows the utilization of cross-polarized information for part of the scene.
