New possibilities using TSX and TDX in support of sea ice use
Paper in proceedings, 2018

Sea ice travel and on-ice operations are important for Arctic coastal communities and industrial operations. Recent rapid changes in Arctic sea ice impacting ice users emphasize the need for assessment strategies capable of guiding decision makers and documenting change in key ice-use related parameters. In this paper, we demonstrate the potential for the use of TSX and TDX interferometry to assess deformation, drift, and roughness of coastal sea ice. Through on-ice validation using Structure-from-Motion and high-precision GPS, we demonstrate a high level of detail and accuracy potentially enabling the use of these products in decision making.
