Abstract: Satellite measurements are providing daily views of sea‐ice motion in the polar regions. This unprecedented capability will lead to routine monitoring of ice flow for climate change studies and ship‐routing applications. In 1996, the NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) rode into orbit on the Japanese satellite ADEOS and gathered 8.5 months of valuable wind data. Designed to observe wind speeds and directions over the ocean surface, NSCAT data also achieved exciting and totally unanticipated success in measuring sea‐ice…
