  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
This paper presents a methodology to process airborne interferometric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data to measure surface velocity fields (SVFs) of temperate glaciers, and applies it to data acquired over the Aletsch glacier. The first part of this paper deals with the main limitation in airborne interferometric SAR to retrieve reliable interferometric products, namely, the existence of the so-called residual motion errors - inaccuracies on the order of a few centimeters in the navigation… CONTINUE READING
