AbstractThis report documents the results of the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) led GRIP supported Project 'Advanced SAR Applications for Canada's Cryosphere (Freshwater ice, and Permafrost)' (IMOU 10MOA41003) that was carried out from April 2010 to March 2012. The project addressed GRIP segment 1 'Research and Development' (R&D) to develop, demonstrate and plan the implementation of innovative approaches for using satellite radar images to map and monitor the location, extent, and dynamics of fresh water ice and permafrost. The study areas selected for the GRIP project were mainly located in the arctic and subarctic regions of northern Canada; some sites for the river ice component were located in Manitoba and Alberta. The information gained from the available radar images and supporting on-site information is expected to support the management of northern environments and northern development activities. Overall, the GRIP project research outcomes have been well documented. More than 30 sample information products were generated, accompanied by more than 20 reports and an equal number of presentations; seven posters were prepared and presented at national and international meetings. Some 15 papers on GRIP project research related to lake ice, river ice and permafrost were published in the scientific literature.
