Project “Warm oceanic Inflows for Near-real time Detection Of Weddell polynya from Space (WINDOWS)”, funded by Rymdstyrelsen grant 164/18
Ca 4.5 million SEK; I am the PI.
Started in January 2019, finishes in December 2022.
The aim is to create an “early warning system” to detect that the winter sea ice is going to open, by combining passive and active satellite remote sensing. We are using the Weddell Polynya in the Southern Ocean as test subject.
