As contribution to the ESA project Icesheets CCI ENVEO mapped the calving front of the Sermeq Avannarleq glacier in West Greenland from multiple SAR images acquired in the period 1992 - 2010. The resulting video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSCJlh0wwq0) shows the evolution of the Sermeq Avannarleq glacier, and illustrates in particular the retreat of the glacier tongue in this period.
As one of three selected candidate missions, CoReH2O will be presented at ESA's Earth Explorer-7 User Consultation Meeting on 05 - 06 March 2013 in the Congress Centre in Graz, Austria. For more information on the meeting, please follow this link.
The third AlpSAR campaign for testing the Syntetic Aperture Radar (SAR) "SnowSAR" as preparation for the Earth Explorer-7 CoReH2O mission over the Austrian Alps is planned for 18 - 26 February 2013. For further information on the AlpSAR project follow this link.
Two successful AlpSAR campaigns were carried out from 19 - 24 November 2012 and from 08 - 25 January 2013 over the Austrian Alps. In collaboration with scientists from the Federal Research and Training Centre for Forests, Natural Hazards and Landscape (BfW), the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL, NASA), and the Boise State University in Idaho, USA, ENVEO organized field measurements at three selected test sites in partly high alpine terrain.
