Sea Ice Pressure Ridge Sail Height, Arctic, 2010-2018 (NCEI Accession 0202018)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

The Sail height data is derived from high-resolution Digital Mapping System imagery acquired in the late winter months of March, April, and May during NASA's annual Operation IceBridge airborne campaigns in the Arctic. Pressure-ridge sail-height is defined as the height of the ridge sail above the sea ice surface. Statistics describing pressure ridge sails are extracted per image. Arithmetic averages are computed for 25 km along-track segments for each aircraft flight line, in the absence of clouds, polar darkness and sea ice leads.
