Satellite Tracking of Ice Loss in Antarctica

An international team of researchers, led by Dr. Anna Hogg, a CCI Research Fellow working on the CCI’s Antarctic Ice Sheet project, has published the findings of their latest study on glacier flow on the southern Antarctic Peninsula. The study has used over two decades of observations, by five radar satellites (incl. ERS, Envisat and Sentinel-1), to importantly show that the increase in glacier flow (i.e. ice velocity) in this particular region of the world is only a third of what was recently reported. 

The publication in Geophysical Research Letters can be found here. The publication’s lead author, Dr. Anna Hogg from the University of Leeds’ School of Earth and Environment, is part of the UK's Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM).
