Improving altimetry mass estimates through the application of firn densification corrections

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Altimeter missions provide valuable information of height and volume changes of land ice. In order to convert these estimates into mass estimates (and hence make assumptions about sea level contributions), the volume estimates need to be multiplied by the relevant densities. In this project, you will take available surface height change estimates from existing altimetry missions (e.g. Envisat and Cryosat-2) and combine them with output from regional climate models in order to improve mass change estimates from altimetry. Dependent on your interest the focus is flexible, from physical modeling of snow and ice to satellite altimetry analysis.

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.
