A new paper was published at EGU The Cryosphere concerning the CIMR mission.
The paper uses JAXA AMSR2 data to demonstrate how a Level-2 NRT sea-ice drift product would look like for CIMR. HIstorically, brightness temperature data have been put together into daily maps before sea-ice drift maps were computed (Level-3 approach). In this new paper, we demonstrate the benefits of moving to a Level-2 approach (drift vectors computed from swath to swath). We obtain many more motion vectors with the Level-2 approach, and they are more accurate when compared against buoy data.
