Abstract : The research presented here investigated materials with permittivities similar to those of sea ice over the microwave frequency range. These materials will be used in future synthetic targets to study and quantify various scattering mechanisms considered to be of importance in sea ice. They will also be used in assessing the behavior of inverse models, i.e., models for retrieving ice physical and electrical characteristics from remote sensing data. The report presents the types of materials investigated, general mechanical characteristics and results of investigations to control permittivities within the range exhibited by sea ice. (MM)
