Research Interests

Dr. Tschudi’s research centers on satellite and airborne remote sensing of
Arctic sea ice. I consider this research paramount for understanding the changing nature of the
Arctic sea ice cover. One focus of this research is overseeing and participating in the
production and improvement of sea ice motion and age datasets, which are archived at the
National Snow and Ice Data Center. These datasets have been used extensively by several
research groups. Dr. Tschudi has has participated in several airborne research campaigns which
have addressed the characterization of Arctic sea ice. He also performs calibration and validation
on Suomi-NPP VIIRS sea ice products.
