1995). The variability in image texture of multiyear sea ice is due to the spatial pattern of hummock and frozen melt pond surfaces within the multiyear sea ice. 3 GHz energy. Within first-year sea ice, microwave scattering appears to oscillate according to changes in the oceanic and atmospheric heat fluxes. 1994). The relationship appears to be related to the effect of heat fluxes on the dielectrics of the first -year ice surface in the very early part of the winter season and then by atmospheric flux effects on the basal snow layer during the warmer part of the winter season.

1987. (Adapted from Barber et al. 1995) thick first-year and multiyear sea ice follows a form approximated in Fig_ 3. 1987) we can summarize the seasonal evolution of 0'0 as follows: Winter. Within multiyear sea ice, microwave scattering is very stable during the winter period. The primary scattering mechanism is the bubble structure within the surface hummock layer (Onstott 1992). Older forms of ice appear to have a higher magnitude of scattering, due to the larger and deeper hummock layers which contain larger bubble sizes spaced further apart within the hummocks (Barber et al.
