Project

ICESat-derived ice changes in Greenland using mass changes time series as constraint

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

ICESat was a satellite laser altimeter launched by NASA, and it continuously measured the e.g. the Greenland ice sheet in the period 2003-2009.  
ICESat has been widely used to map the climate-change-driven changes of the ice sheet.

ICESat-derived ice volume changes rely on linear trend plus seasonal functions to fit the temporal distribution of measurements. The project aims to replace this simple function with more realistic temporal pattern derived by GRACE and test if the resulting residual error is reduced.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
