CryoTop Evolution

Mapping ice elevation by innovative altimeter swath processing.

The inference about the state of the Antarctic and Greenland Ice Sheets has been performed with the swath elevations, DEMs, elevation change and innovative science products making use of the technique of swath interferometry applied to SARIn mode CryoSat-2 data.

This project has dealt with the production of level 2, level 3 and level 4 products making use of the technique of swath interferometry applied to SARIn mode CryoSat-2 data to make inference about the state of the Antarctic and Greenland Ice Sheets in a period of rapid changes and increased contribution to sea level.

isardSAT was the Project Manager and also responsible for the validation of the DEM products.
