Summary of Proposal HYD3133

TitleLand and sea ice dynamics in Northeast Greenland
Investigator Floricioiu, Dana - DLR, IMF
Team Member
Dr. Dettmering, Denise - Technische Universität München (TUM), Deutsches Geodätisches Forschungsinstitut (DGFI)
SummaryThe data requested through this proposal will be used within the DFG project “The linked ice sheet – ocean – atmosphere system in Northeast Greenland and its sensitivity”. The project aims to study the current state of glaciers in NE Greenland and the sea ice and ocean currents along the coast.The main goals are to achieve insights into ice flux dynamics and mass balance of the outlet glaciers.The ice surface velocity is a crucial parameter needed for achieving these goals and will be derived from TSX (stripmap) data. Regarding the ocean part the TSX data will support the classification of open water and sea ice in order to separate the altimetry measurements over these surfaces.Data analysis is funded from the mentioned DFG project.
