DFD uses ERS-Radar data to monitor changes of the Antarctic Ice Sheet
Glacier motion in the Amundsen Sea sector of the West-Antarctic ice sheet has been a research topic at the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) for several years. Since 1991 DFD acquires ERS SAR data of Antarctica via its receiving station at O'Higgins. This data set allows to measure glacier motion variations on seasonal and annual time scales.
