A number of remote sensing instruments with multi-spectral imaging capabilities (SeaWiFS, MODIS, GLI on ADEOS-II, and others) have recently been launched on earth-orbiting satellites or will soon be launched into space. Many of these sensors offer unique opportunities for studies of sea ice and ocean properties at high latitudes. There are a number of challenges associated with the inversion of data received from satellite such instruments in order to retrieve meaningful information. Here we discuss some of these challenges with emphasis on the derivation of sea ice and marine parameters from satellite data.
