Short summary
This paper demonstrates how sea ice segmentation using high-resolution multi-polarisation synthetic aperture radar (SAR) can be used to retrieve valuable information about sea ice type during late summer. It adds knowledge to how choice of SAR features influence the information gain and highlights the sea ice segmentation capability of both the C and X band in late summer. The study contributes to an increased understanding of sea ice mapping and monitoring with SAR in the melt season.
