Abstract

This paper describes a methodology, based on Extended Principal Components Analysis, which is used to categorize the spatial and temporal patterns of surface change that occur in the Seasonal Sea Ice Zone during the spring/early summer. The methodology is demonstrated for the Kara/Barents Sea in spring 1984 using data from the Nimbus-7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer. The analysis shows conditions in the Barents Sea to be largely controlled by ice advection, while the variance in the Kara Sea is dominated by surface melt
