Short summary
This paper demonstrates the use of the CryoSat-2 SAR altimeter in operational ice charting. We take CryoSat-2 data and compare them to ice charts over the sea-ice-covered regions in the Barents and Kara seas. We also present an automatic classification method for CryoSat-2 measurements that could be used to support navigation. We conclude that SAR altimeter measurements can be valuable to operational ice charting if other data sources are unavailable.
