In this section, the 5 used algorithms to retrieve ice concentration will be
Most algorithms are based on two simple equations:
where , and are the amount of open water, multi-year ice and first-year ice, respectively. is not to be confused with from equation 1. The second formula is:
where is the brightness
temperature and ,
and are the brightness
temperatures from open water, multi-year ice and first-year ice, respectively.
The algorithms will be addressed separately below.
