Summary of Proposal HYD2427

TitleMelt pattern monitoring in Northeast Greenland ice sheet

SummaryThe data requested through this proposal will be used within the DFG project “Variations of ice sheet geometry, ice flow and mass distribution in Northeast Greenland in the context of oceanic and atmospheric interactions”. The project aims to study the current state of glaciers in the NE Greenland. The main goals are to achieve insights into ice flux dynamics and mass balance of the outlet glaciers. The surface melt is an important component of the mass loss and the new wide ScanSAR (WSC) acquisition mode of TSX is optimal for monitoring the surface melt of these large areas which cannot be entirely covered with the narrower swaths.Data analysis is funded from the mentioned DFG project.
