The ERS-1 and ERS-2 play an essential role in the development of the
Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facility (OSI SAF), to become
an integral part of the satellite ground segment. During the life time
of ERS-1 and ERS-2 the processing of ERS scatterometer winds has been
developed considerably, and many operational centers using
scatterometer data followed these developments. In the Ocean and Sea
Ice SAF, preparations are made for the wind and ice products of the
ASCAT scatterometer on EPS/METOP. A pre-operational ice product based
on the ERS-2 scatterometer is presented in this paper. This ice
product is based on the three dimensional measurement space. Besides a
ice discrimination other important geophysical parameters can be
determined using this new ice model. Comparisons will be made with
existing ice detection models.
