Ice surface displacement of glaciers and ice caps from Sentinel-1

Selected ice surface displacement results obtained with Sentinel-1 data over glaciers and ice caps were presented at the 2016 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium in Prague. Significant changes of ice surface velocities evident from the comparison with older maps were highlighted by the ESA Glacier_CCI project team.

The presentation held on the "Glaciers and Ice Caps 2" session is available [here] to download. Read more »
