Radar backscatter measurements were made of shorefast sea ice near Point Barrow, AK, in May 1977, with a surface-based FM-CW scatterometer that swept from 1-2 GHz and from 8.5-17.5 GHz. The 1-2 GHz measurements showed that thick first-year and multiyear ice cannot be distinguished at 10-70° incidence angles, but that undeformed sea ice can be discriminated from pressure ridges and lake ice. Results also indicate that frequencies between 8-18 GHz have the ability to discriminate between thick first-year, multiyear, and lake ice. Cross polarization was found to be a better discriminator than like polarization. In addition, at these latter frequencies the differential scattering cross section ¿° was found to have an approximately linearly increasing frequency response.
