DLR-Nachwuchsforschergruppe am DFD (GARS O’Higgins), Reprocessing ERS-1/2 Archive of GARS for glaciological products along the AP

The working group of Matthias Braun contributes to the HGF Nachwuchsforschergruppe of Dr. Kathrin Höppner at DLR DFD by supervising a MSc and PhD student. The aim of the PhD project is to derive quantitative glaciological variables from large-scale processing of the entire ERS-1/2 archive over the Antarctic Peninsula stored at DLR. The ERS archive was acquired between 1991 and 2011 during various acquisition campaigns at the German Antarctic Receiving Station (GARS) near the Chilean base O’Higgins. The working group at FAU provides its knwoeldge and expertise on SAR processing as well as algorithms where required.
