This paper summarizes study results obtained about the characteristics of sea ice in the Davis Strait off the coast of Baffin Island in 2019. The study, also referred to as ICESAR 2019, is based on multi-frequency and interferometric data collected by the DLR F-SAR airborne radar in the course of the PermASAR campaign in the Canadian Arctic with the aim of improving knowledge on the radar properties of sea ice at different wavelengths and polarisations.
