1 Paul Briand and Yves Crevier Canadian Space Agency (CSA) GIIPSY Meeting, San Francisco, Dec 12, 2006 Arctic Science Archive Processing Project (ASAP)

2 Background Radarsat-1 Ideal EO system to monitor polar regions Still operational ( ) Data continuity Radarsat-2 (Canadian government data allocation - $450M) Radarsat C (High revisiting frequency – 3 satellites) CSA submitted a proposal to the Canadian IPY office to support the coordination, acquisition, processing and dissemination of Radarsat data during the IPY period Large Radarsat-1 Archive collected over both polar regions (>250,000 images over the Arctic) CSA initiated the processing of a significant portion of the Radarsat-1 Canadian Archive - ASAP project ($1.5M)

3 ASAP Project National consultation (Nov-06) Three phases under which more than Radarsat-1 archive data will be processed: Phase 1 (50%): Blanket coverage in Fine 1 of the Canadian polar region and the Arctic Archipelago ( ) Phase 2 (25%): Seasonal polar snapshots between 2003 and now Phase 3 (25%): Processing of images under specific areas of interests identified and agreed upon as supersites by the research communities Web Portal for images and products dissemination

4 Phase 1

5 Phase 2 Circumpolar ScanSAR Seasonal Coverage Summer 2003 Fall 2003

6 Phase 2 Circumpolar ScanSAR Seasonal Coverage Winter 2004 Spring 2004

7 Phase 3

8 Next Steps … National consultation (supersites) Looking for the collaboration of other Agencies to complement the ASAP project ASAP Portal: Integration of two existing ScanSar mosaics of Canada (Winter and Summer mosaic) Integration of the Canadian Ice Service Radarsat-1 Archive data ( > 30,000 images) ASAP data & products will be accessible to IPY researchers Participate in the ICSU-WMO IPY Space Task Group
