| In this paper, we use single and dualpass satellite-based interferometric radar to measure the ow magnitude of a large alpine glacier. Since the radar measurements alone are not su cient to resolve the 3-D ow direction of the glacier, several ow directions assumptions are made, and checked for mutual consistency. The assumptions that the horizontal component of ow is parallel to the medial moraine, and that the ow is parallel to the glacier surface give the best results over most of the… CONTINUE READING
