International Workshop on
Antarctica Remote Sensing for Global Change Monitoring
Beijing, P.R. China – 21st April 2013
Call for abstracts
Antarctica region is a crucial area for the climate change study on the whole Earth. Remote Sensing technology is one of the most important methodologies for data collection and change monitoring in this area. Modeling and application oriented contributions, investigations on the use of existing and new sensors, and experiences about data integration and cross-validation with both spaceborne and ground-based sensors (e.g. GNSS, ice penetrating radar) will be discussed in the workshop.
Contributions are expected, but not limited, to the following topics:
1. Extraction of the ice sheet boundaries, grounding lines and changes along time
2. Measurements of the ice sheet surface changes and ice flow field velocity
3. Geodetic observations for regional and global mass balance and sea level monitoring
4. Numerical modeling of the ice cap, GIA, and geoid model in the Antarctica region.
