... Service for technical advice and support. RADAR SIGNATURES of ICE FEATURES A number of RADARSAT-2 (RS2) images were collected starting in September 2013 over the Beaufort Sea. The images contained a number of ice features including young ice, multi-year floes and ridges and rubble fields. Rubble fields...
