Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is commonly used as a non-contact method of obtaining full-field maps of strain in experimental mechanics. This technique can be used to determine full-field deformations and motions in sea ice using aerial imagery such as satellite high-resolution optical images or synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. DIC can also be used to obtain information about the ice during model tests of structures in ice.
