VIIRS Sea ice leads detections using a U-Net

Jay Hoffman, Steven Ackerman, Yinghui Liu, Jeffrey Key & Iain McConnell
Sea ice leads are long and narrow sea ice fractures. Despite accounting for a small fraction of the Arctic surface area, leads play a critical role in the energy flux between the ocean and atmosphere. As the volume of sea ice in the Arctic has declined over recent decades, it is increasingly important to monitor the corresponding changes in sea ice leads. An approach described in Hoffman et al. 2021 uses artificial intelligence (AI) to...
