Short summary
Satellite radar images are used for detecting and quantifying the motion of sea ice. Traditionally C-band radar images have been used for this purpose. The technique has been shown to work with other frequency bands. This work compares C-band and L-band images for the Baltic Sea. We also show that two images of different bands can be used for sea ice motion estimation.
