SummaryThe TerraSAR-X data required in this proposal will be used within the approved DFG project "Antarctic IMB".The goal of the project is a new and comprehensive estimate of the ice mass balance of Antarctica and its major ice drainage basins and the corresponding sea level contribution with unprecedented accuracy. The observational fundament are time-variable gravity field data from GRACE, surface elevation and elevation-change data from ICESat and ERS-1/ERS-2/Envisat/TanDEM-X, surface flow data from satellite syntheticaperture radar (SAR) and feature tracking and GPS observations on crustal deformations. The high resolution TerraSAR-X data will be used for detailed investigations of dynamic glaciers and ice streams in West and East Antarctica.
