Final Report - INTEGRAL (Interferometric Evaluation of Glacier Rheology and Alterations)

Project ID: 502845
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final activity report of the Integral initiative which aimed to develop advanced observation technology for the unsupervised detection and variational analysis of ice deformation and motion on large European glaciers. It presents the results obtained by different radar interferometry and interferometric altimetry techniques which were compared during field surveys in the Austrian and Swiss Alps, the Svartisen Ice Caps, the Svalbard, Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land. These were appraised and incorporated in the framework of 'Global monitoring for environment and security' (GMES) projects on land cover, marine environment and climate change with the ultimate aim to substantially contribute to the proper maintenance of global environment observation systems.
