Satellite-based glacier monitoring in the ESA project Glaciers_cci


Paul, Frank; Bolch, Tobias; Kääb, Andreas; Nagler, T; Shepherd, A; Strozzi, T (2012). Satellite-based glacier monitoring in the ESA project Glaciers_cci. In: Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS), 2012 IEEE International, Munich, Germany, 22 July 2012 - 27 July 2012, 3222-3225.

Abstract

Well established techniques with partly automated processing workflows are in place to extract most relevant information about glaciers (area, elevation change, velocity) from a large variety of spaceborne sensors types (optical, microwave, altimeters). They generally provide complimentary information and are thus particularly useful when combined. With the recently launched (Cryosat-2, TanDEM-X) or planned (Sentinels 1 and 2, LDCM) satellite missions and the commitment to free data distribution by space agencies, the contribution of space-borne sensors to glacier monitoring will play an increasing role in the future.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
