Regional-scale spatio-temporal changes in glacier flow

Glacier flow can be measured through image correlation from repeat spaceborne optical and radar images. The large number of archived satellite data suitable for such work enables development of time series of glacier surface velocity fields with high temporal and spatial resolution. Such results support new insights into glacier flow and glacier response to climatic forcing.

Study area(s) open and to be discussed, for instance Svalbard, Himalaya, etc. In collaboration with European Space Agency (ESA).

The work includes: geometric processing of satellite imagery, image correlation, analysis of glacier flow results.
