To investigate the possible insights that may be provided by careful subtraction of similarly-illuminated and processed satellite images
Recent work has indicated that the approach is useful for detecting elevation uplift or lowering due to sub-glacial lake filling and draining. The image shows promise as a confirmation tool for ICESat-measured elevation changes, by indicating the exact extent of the elevation change detected by ICESat's laser profiles.
