This folder contains the iceberg size characteristics interferred from Sentinel-2 optical imagery. Data of the five major iceberg sources in the Barents Sea are provided. For the locations (a1,a2,b1 etc.), see Figure 3 in the paper. The data includes: the perimeter and the area of the icebergs. Further, the 'height' and 'width' are given. These parameteres are found using a fitted minimum surrounding box in the software QGIS. The largest value (between height and width) is defined as the iceberg length and the smallest value the iceberg width.
