Determination of variations in glacier surface movements through high resolution interferometry; Bylot Island, Canada

  title={Determination of variations in glacier surface movements through high resolution interferometry; Bylot Island, Canada},
  author={Ken Whitehead and Brian Moorman and Pablo Wainstein},
  journal={2009 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium},
Interferograms were generated from 10 TerraSAR-X image pairs, with the objective of obtaining estimates of winter surface motion for a slow-moving polythermal arctic glacier. Flow directions were computed using both ascending and descending-pass interferograms for each period, with the median value being adopted as the final direction. The weighted average flow was computed, with weighting based on the inverse of the difference between the ascending and descending-pass displacement estimates… CONTINUE READING
