Remote Sensing of Sea Ice in the Northern Sea Route: Studies and Applications

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Remote Sensing of Sea Ice in the Northern Sea Route: Studies and Applications initially provides a history of the Northern Sea Route as an important strategic transport route for supporting the northern regions of Russia and cargo transportation between Europe and the Northern Pacific Basin. The authors then describe sea ice conditions in the Eurasian Arctic Seas and, using microwave satellite data, provide a detailed analysis of difficult sea ice conditions. Remote sensing techniques and the basic principles of SAR image formation are described, as well as the major satellite radar systems used for ice studies in the Arctic. The authors take a good look at the use of sensing equipment in experiments, including the ICE WATCH project used for monitoring the Northern Sea Route. The possibilities of using SAR remote sensing for ice navigation in the Northern Sea Route is also detailed, analysing techniques of automatic image processing and interpretation. A study is provided of regional drifting ice, fast ice and river ice in the coastal areas of the Arctic Seas. The book concludes with a review of the practical experience using SAR images for supporting navigation and offshore industrial activity, based on a series of experiments conducted with the Murmansk Shipping Company on board nuclear icebreakers.

Synopsis:

"The Northern Sea Route is the assembly of sailing routes in the Russian Arctic between the Barents Sea in the west and Bering Strait in the east and is the shortest transit sailing route linking northwestern Europe and northeastern Asia. In winter the entire route is ice-covered, and even during the summer months parts can be ice-covered, significantly hampering navigation." "Remote Sensing of Sea Ice in the Northern Sea Route: and Applications describes the use of satellite remote sensing data for sea ice monitoring in the Northern Sea Route." "Recent observations and future climate scenarios suggest that large parts of the Arctic will be ice-free during the summer months by the end of this century. This will open the way for increased shipping activities, and the book concludes by looking at possible future activities in the Northern Sea Route."--BOOK JACKET.
