A summary of the theoretical basis and initial performance of the algorithms that are used to derive sea ice concentration, ice temperature, and snow depth on sea ice from newly acquired Earth Observing System-Aqua/Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS (AMSR-E) radiances is presented. The algorithms have been developed and tested using historical satellite passive microwave data and are expected to provide more accurate products, since they are designed to take advantage of the wider range of frequencies and higher spatial resolution of the AMSR-E microwave instrument. Validation programs involving coordinated satellite, aircraft, and surface measurements to determine the accuracies of these sea ice products and to improve further our capability to monitor global sea ice are currently underway.
