Antarctic Sub-glacial Lakes: Satellite Image Analysis in Support of ICESat-1 and CryoSat-2 Altimetry


NASAThis project is funded by NASA grant NNX10AG21G

Collaborators

Ted Scambos (NSIDC); Helen Fricker (Scripps Institute of Oceanography)

Project Summary

We use MODIS image differencing and other techniques to evaluate ice sheet surface topography changes as lakes trapped beneath the ice sheet fill and drain. This extends the results that can be derived from altimetry alone.
