Monitoring of Flow Rate of Larsen C

Monitoring of Flow Rate of Larsen C

The split with Iceberg A-68 may result in a change in the ice flow velocity of Larsen C Ice Shelf. In this project, the flow velocity of Larsen C Ice Shelf is monitored by using Sentinel-1 SAR images. Sentinel-1A and Sentinel-1B observed surface every 12 days with a time difference of 6 days. Therefore, if SAR images can be obtained from the two satellites, the ice...

Monitoring of Sea Ice Concentration around Iceberg A-68

Monitoring of Sea Ice Concentration around Iceberg A-68

Sea ice concentration is defined as the area of relative to a given specific area of the ocean. It has been estimated since 1978 by the satellite passive microwave sensors. The passive microwave sensors have a spatial resolution of tens of kilometers, but it is good for observing polar sea ice because it can observe the Arctic and the Antarctica every day. In...
