Abstract

This study presents a comparison of the results of three different compression schemes when applied to remotely sensed arctic radiance images. Images obtained via Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I) are compressed using three different compression schemes at varying levels of compression and are evaluated using the ice concentration and ice type derived from the radiance values as metrics. The results show that the DRIQ compression scheme consistently performed better than the MRVQ and DCAVQ algorithms.
