Fifteen years ago we carried out dGPS field surveys and mapped surface changes in the Hornbreen-Hambergbreen (H-H) icy isthmus, also known as Mendeleev Plain in South Spitsbergen, Svalbard, using satellite interferometry (ERS-1/2) and altimetry (ICESat) data. Local vertical movements with amplitudes of a few cm per day, measured on the flat and smo...

The present paper proposes an advanced observation technology for the airport runway monitoring service (RMS) based on the complementary use of interferometric SAR data from Sentinel-1-A/B satellites, hydrometeorological observations and ground geotechnical surveys. We investigate the suitability and technical feasibility of using satellite dual-se...

The availability and quality of relevant hydrometeorological data remains a decisive factor for estimating, forecasting and compensating weather-related errors in the satellite interferometric monitoring of slow ground deformations with typical rates of several mm/a. Modern airports with paved runways are supplied with thorough meteorological infor...

Random variations of local weather represent the main limiting factor for practical applications of persistent scatterer interferometry (PSI) at the sub-regional level. 190 Sentinel-1 IW SAR scenes taken over European airfields of Vienna, Bratislava, Graz and Longyearbyen, and timely data recorded at airport meteorological stations were used for th...

Three-year-long Sentinel-1-A/B IW SAR time series and timely data recorded at airport meteorological stations were used for the sub-regional analysis of weather-related impacts on the performance of persistent scatterer SAR interferometry (PSI) in European airfields of Longyearbyen, Vienna, Bratislava and Graz. An original correction technique of “...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The present investigation was aimed at studying spatial variability and directional dynamics of inland ice/snow fields in relation to lateral variations of surface gravity at the sub-regional scale of tens to hundreds of kilometres.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
ERS, TDX and S1A SAR interferometric models calibrated with ICESat and CryoSat-2 altimetry data were successfully applied to mapping and quantifying recent breakup of the Matusevich Ice Shelf in Severnaya Zemlya. The assessment of the mapped changes showed that the ice shelf lost 123±2.5 km² or two thirds of its area and 9±0.3 km³ of its volume in...
Article
Full-text available
Algorithmic variations to the glacier motion estimation from differential SAR interferometry are discussed in the present paper. Two efficient albeit relatively simple algorithms for modelling glacier dynamics using spaceborne INSAR data have been devised and tested as alternatives to the conventional DINSAR approach. Neither of the algorithms invo...
Article
Mass balance of Russia's northernmost ice caps is poorly known and scarcely mapped. Thorough information about glacier fluctuations in the outer periphery of Russian shelf seas is both lacking and highly desired since it may constitute the relevant benchmark for judging and projecting climate change impacts in the entire Arctic. The present study i...
Article
Full-text available
All known glaciological models describing the evolution of Arctic land- and sea-ice masses in changing climate treat the Earth's gravity as horizontally constant, but it isn't. In the High Arctic, the strength of the gravitational field varies considerably across even short distances under the influence of a density gradient, and the magnitude of f...

The main objective of the research project ICEAGE is to determine, interprete and map the present state of snow and ice cover as well as its variations in the Eurasian Arctic Sector about 31° to 81° East and 73° to 82° North. The investigations are based on terrestrial, space-borne interferometric, altimetric, and gravity field data. Special emphas...
Article
In the 1950s, the total area of glaciers occupying separate islands and archipelagos of the Barents and Kara seas exceeded 92,300 km² (Atlas of the Arctic 1985). The overall glacier volume reached 20,140 km³ and the average ice thickness was given as 218 m. Our recent remote sensing studies and mass-balance estimates using spaceborne ASTER and LAND...

Article
Offset fields between pairs of JERS-1 satellite SAR data acquired in winter with 44 days time interval were employed for the estimation of Arctic glacier motion over Svalbard, Novaya Zemlya and Franz-Josef Land. The displacement maps show that the ice caps are divided into a number of clearly defined fast-flowing units with displacement larger than...

You will not find the name Hornsundet in existing maps. This invented toponym refers to a hypothetical sub-glacial strait between Torell and Sörkapp lands in South Spitsbergen, Norwegian High Arctic. A relatively low and flat ice isthmus formed by Hornbreen and Hambergbreen tidewater glaciers is currently bridging the two lands. In the narrowest pa...

L-band SAR interferometry and offset tracking were applied for the estimation of arctic glacier motion over Franz Josef Land, Novaya Zemlya and Svalbard using SAR data acquired by the JERS-1 satellite with 44 days time interval. Our SAR interferometric results indicate a generally good coherence with well preserved fringes over the slow moving glac...

Satellite radar interferometry (INSAR) offers a particularly potent means for conducting glaciologi-cal studies in polar regions. We successfully used ERS-1/2 INSAR data obtained in winter 1996 for studying glacier dynamics in the high-latitudinal archipelago of Nova ya Zemlya. Two efficient albeit relatively simple algorithms for modeling glacier...

Some specif...
Article
The cost-efficiency of photogrammetric mapping by means of spaceborne stereophotographs heavily depends on the geometric quality of the image. Geometric properties are usually inhomogeneous over the image area and very often only a part of the satellite image is used for practical cartography. In many cases digital image processing under large magn...

Ice mass and glacier changes are often observed using geometrical methods. In this paper, a different approach is presented: by investigating the gravitational effects linked to such muss changes, satellite gravity missions like GOCE can be seen as global monitoring instruments for the cryosphere.
