Short summary
Sea ice cover is the most fundamental factor that indicates the underlying great changes in the Arctic. We propose novel sea ice cover data in high resolution of a few hundred meters by spaceborne synthetic aperture radar, which is more than 10 times that of the operational sea ice cover and concentration data. The method is based on a deep learning architecture of U-Net. We have been processing data acquired by Sentinel-1 since 2014 to obtain high-quality sea ice cover data in the Arctic.
