ICEFLOW: Short-term movements in the Cryosphere

UNIVERSITY OF OSLO (NO)

Summary

Living Planet Fellowship research project carried out by Bas Altena.

Earth observation plays an important role in society and business, today, and more so in the near future. Several times a day, satellite systems acquire data over targeted areas or with global coverage, which will only increase in the future. Imagery for velocity products will be acquired through spaceborne SAR (ICEye) or optical (Earth-i, Urthecast, Planet) instruments. Hence, demonstrating use cases with such data sparks innovation, and shows opportunities that inspire. For the case of the cryosphere, where change occurs rapidly, we will explore and exploit real-time remote sensing.

Velocity information is a new dimension for such datasets, enlarging the product portfolio. The methods that will be shown during this project are transferable, and ready for the new era of Earth observation, where business activity from space will become an essential asset in this global economy. As most of such processes might not be grasped alone with (pixel-wise) change detection.
