Title: Ice drift and deformation


This image of the Arctic shows the ice drift derived from Sentinel-1, on 27-28 February 2016. On the right the ice deformations, where red represents convergence or ridge formations and blue represents openings.

The Sentinel-1 constellation provides a great added value in the operational monitoring of floating ice in the Arctic and around Antarctica.
