SummaryThe projects targets on the analysis of archived data acquired by background missions in particular the BGM Antarctic Peninsula and Antarctic Ice Shelves.Other archived data other campaigns or acquisitions will be used as required (e.g. for Greenland or Svalbard). Proposed products are surface velocity fields of glaciers, ice streams and ice shelves; snow/glacier facies maps and glacier extent maps; grounding line positions, ice rise inventory, structural glaciological maps. We propose to use intensity feature and coherence tracking, differential SAR interferometry and standard classification methods on ration or coherence imagery for snow/glacier facies and glacier extent mapping. Data analysis is funded from core funds, DFG projects and a HGF alliance.
