Abstract

Due to the increased melting of ice sheets over the last decades, monitoring of ice dynamics and structure with remote sensing instruments is of extreme importance to achieve a deeper insight on related environmental issues. The study presented in this paper documents an attempt of mapping ice structure with P-band SAR tomography. First results from ESA IceSAR 2012 campaign carried out in south-west Greenland are presented. It is found that significant penetration in the upper layers of glacial subsurface can be achieved up to an extent of about 20–60 m, conditional on the different type of glaciological zone observed.
