Abstract
SLAR imagery of Nares Strait was obtained on four flights in an Argus aircraft e quipped with a Motorola APS-94D SLAR. No observations on the ground were possibl e, but some back-up was available on all flights from visual observations recore ded in the air, and on the March flight from infrared line-scan and vertical pho tography. The interpretations of ice features from the SLAR imagery is discussed , and the conclusion reached that in spite of certain ambiguities the technique has great potential which will increase with improving resolution. Extent of cov erage per distance flown and independence of light and cloud conditions make it unique among airborne sensors.
