Keywords: Sea Ice, Passive Microwave Radiometer, Ice Thickness Abstract. Passive microwave radiometers on-board satellites can penetrate clouds and can monitor the global sea ice distribution on daily basis. The authors have developed an algorithm to extract thin ice area in the Sea of Okhotsk from the passive microwave sensor AMSR2 on-board GCOM-W1 satellite. The algorithm uses the brightness temperature scatter plots of AMSR2 19 GHz polarization difference(V–H) vs. 19 GHz V polarization. The results were verified using simultaneously collected MODIS images in the Sea of Okhotsk. The most of the thin ice areas visually identified in the MODIS images were automatically extracted from AMSR2 data using the algorithm.
