Fifteenth International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium; Potsdam, Germany, 10–14 September 2018
In Colorado forests, NASA scientists and a multinational team of researchers test the limits of satellite remote sensing for measuring the water content of snow.
By combining changes in elevation with other data, scientists have developed a method for estimating the thickness of debris covering glaciers on whose water more than 800 million people depend.
Salty snow throws off satellite-based estimates of Arctic sea ice thickness by up to 25%. A new method seeks to fix that.
Researchers brave perils and tumbling trash to probe glacial caves on Mount Rainier, improving their understanding of its extraordinary environment and helping to advance space exploration.
Researchers used unmanned aerial vehicle data to model the growth of a fracture that broke a 1-kilometer-long iceberg off a Greenland glacier.
New ground-penetrating radar measurements reveal the thickness and total ice volume of the mountain's Northern Ice Field.
An uninterrupted 24-year altimetry record of Amundsen Sea Embayment glaciers indicates the initiation and pace of thinning have been inconsistent across the region.
Researchers trace the origin of a 2015 iceberg to a crack that formed deep beneath the ice.
New processing capabilities improve the spatial resolution of satellite microwave data, enabling scientists to analyze trends in coastal regions and marginal ice zones.
