Short summary
This study demonstrates for the first time the potential of Google Earth Engine (GEE) cloud-computing platform and Sentinel-1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images for semi-automated tracking of area changes and movements of iceberg B43. Our novel GEE-based iceberg tracking can be used to construct a large iceberg database for a better understanding of the behavior of icebergs and their interactions with surrounding environments.
