Summary of Proposal HYD2671

TitleMonitoring calving glacier dynamics on the Southern Patagonia Icefield, Chile
Investigator Floricioiu, Dana - DLR, IMF
Team Member
Mr. Johnson, Erling - Universidad de Magallanes, Dirección de Programas Antárticos (DPA)
Dr. Rivera, Andrés - Centro de Estudios Cientificos, Glaciology and Climate Change
SummaryUtilising repeat-pass TerraSAR-X imagery, the aim of this project is to estimate past (derived from archived imagery: 2008-2013) and future (derived from 2015 and 2016 images) ice surface velocities on the outlet glaciers of the Southern Patagonia Icefield (SPI) in order to identify important glacier-to-glacier variability and better understand calving glacier dynamics. We also want to continue acquisitions of SPI outlet glaciers which were already monitored in previous TSX data proposal HYD0396. Funding: see detailed description.
