Abstract : This report is part of our research program addressing AEM ice thickness determination and will demonstrate that the Navy requirements for rapid airborne methods for mapping ice thickness, in real time, can be accomplished with AEM techniques. At present, there are not reliable airborne techniques for measuring directly sea ice thickness, although impulse radar has yielded promising results by implying sea ice thickness from ice roughness measurements.
