    Multi baseline repeat track interferometry (RTI) can potentially be used to measure both velocities and the micro topography of glaciers. The Danish Center for Remote Sensing (DCRS) in corporation with the Danish Polar Center (DPC) has established a test cite for studies of glacier dynamics on the Storstrommen glacier in North East Greenland. DCRS has acquired RTI data over the glacier in 1994 and 1995 and ERS-1/2 tandem mode data are also available. This paper presents recent results from this study. The advantages of satellite and airborne RTI respectively is described. The paper concludes with an analysis of different configurations of the spatial and temporal baselines
