Satellite Based RADAR Images and ice products for Lower Churchill River

The Ice Cover and Ice Classification Products are derived from the satellite-based synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. These products are critical in understanding river ice conditions during progression and break-up of the ice cover.

The Ice Cover Product is an interpretation of the SAR image that shows the location of ice cover and areas of open water.

The Ice Classification Product classifies areas of the river as open water or water on ice, non-consolidated ice, or consolidated ice. The classifications provide qualitative information on the strength and variation in the ice cover and the presence of ice in open water portions of the river.

The Change Detection Product shows a comparison of the Ice Classification image against the prior Ice Classification image.

Additional information on the Ice Classification Product, with actual on-the-ground photos, is available here.

These images are in JPG format and will open in a new window. The images are around approximately 9Mb in size (approximately 3300 pixels wide and 2800 pixels high).
