This paper describes the validation of an ice-motion processing chain developed for the PROMICE project – a long-term program funded by the Danish ministry of Climate and Energy to monitor the mass budget of the Greenland ice-sheet. The processor, named SUSIE, (Scripts and Utilities for SAR Ice-motion Estimation) uses a combination of differential SAR interferometry (DInSAR) and offset-tracking techniques to measure the horizontal velocity components, providing also an estimate of the corresponding measurement error standard deviations. In this performance of SUSIE’s offset-tracking chain is compared with GPS measurements taken during the winter of 2007/2008 in the area of Kangerlussuaq in west Greenland.
