ENVEO generated the ice velocity map for the Greenland Ice Sheet from Sentinel-1 data in the frame of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet CCI project.
About 4000 acquisitions from Sentinel-1A&B in 2015 and 2016 were used to generate this product.
On 12th July 2017, the Iceberg A68 broke away from the Larsen-C Ice Shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula. Based on Sentinel-1 data, ENVEO illustrates the full dimension of the ice crack at the time of the collapse.
Dr. Gabriele Schwaizer from ENVEO lectured on "SAR/Optical Applications to Ice and Snow" at the 9th ESA Training on Radar and Optical Remote Sensing in Vilnius, Lithuania. In the associated practical training, the participants gained experience on the generation of wet snow maps from Sentinel-1 C-SAR data, and of binary as well as fractional snow extent mapping from Sentinel-2 MSI data.
