Short summary
We have developed an algorithm for detecting LFI over a test area in the Kara and Barents seas using daily Sentinel-1 dual-polarized (HH/HV) SAR mosaics. Both SAR channels have been used jointly for reliably estimating the LFI area. We have generated daily LFI area estimates for a period ranging from Oct 2015 to Aug 2017. The data were also evaluated against Russian AARI ice charts, and the correspondence was rather good. According to this study the algorithm is suitable for operational use.
