In this paper, we present the efforts undertaken by the Australian sea ice research group to support calibration and validation of CryoSat-2 products in the East Antarctic sea ice zone, basically between the Australian Antarctic research stations Mawson and Casey between about 60 deg E and 110 deg E. The first cruise for this purpose was undertaken in October/November 2010, and preliminary results are presented here.
