Project

Examining Greenland ice sheet snow and ice optical properties from Sentinel-3 satellite imagery

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Sunlight absorption is often the dominant melt energy source for snow and ice on land, glaciers, sea, and lakes. Snow and ice melt feedbacks play a role in Arctic amplification of climate warming. 

This project is to evaluate the 2017 and 2018 seasonal variations in Greenland snow optical properties using imagery from the Copernicus ESA Sentinel-3 A and B satellite platforms. 

The work involves the use of a scientific programming language, e.g. Matlab or IDL and may benefit from GIS. 

The project may include travel support to attend ESA meetings.

DTU supervisor could be an employee from DTU Space.
