SummaryObjectives: (1) Detect the sea ice using GNSS-R,TerraSAR-X,combined GNSS-R and TerraSAR-X,respectively. (2) Sea Surface Altimetry on GNSS-R and TerraSAR-X. Methods: Two methods are used to process the amplitudes between both polarizations of reflected signals and the direct signal: the first method is to estimate the ratio of the LHCP amplitude of reflected signals to the RHCP amplitude of reflected signals another method is to estimate the ratio of the LHCP amplitude of reflected signals to the RHCP amplitude of direct signals. The other method is that making use of the left right circular polarization signal peak sequence divide reflection right circular polarization signal peak sequence. Data requirements: TerraSAR-X imagesin study regionfrom 1.January.2009 to 1,May,2009 Deliverables Published two papers in journal or conference Sea ice products in study regionfrom 1.January.2009 to 1,May,2009
