Abstract : This report presents a summary of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data collected during the Coordinate Eastern Arctic Experiment (CEAREX) by the Naval Air Development Center (NADC) and the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan (ERIM). ERIM scientists on board the ice-strengthened vessel, POLARBJORN and stationed at Andoya, Norway, planned and coordinate the P-3 SAR collection flight and performed real-time image analysis of sea ice and open water to facilitate ship operations. Mosaics of the optically processed data are presented along with manually derived geophysical information. In addition, detailed radar and aircraft parameters are given for each data collection. CEAREX, SAR, Radar, Sea Ice, Polar Oceanography.
