CRYOVAL-LI_WEB-D1




Project Description

The CryoVal Land Ice project (2013-2015) main goal is addressing the CryoSat-2 and IceSat error budgets and uncertainties for land ice surfaces making use of extensive in-situ, airborne and satellite datasets acquired in multi-year land ice regions such as north of Greenland, Canada and Antarctica. Furthermore, CryoVal Land Ice project will also evaluate the performances of different retracking algorithms in terms of consistency, robustness and geophysical relevance over different ice scenarios.

The conclusions of CryoVal Land Ice project will be used to design the objectives of future land ice campaign activities and to find the optimal retracking algorithms for CryoSat in the generation of L2 products.

The CryoVal Land Ice Consortium is formed by Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU), Geological Survey of Canada (GSC), isardSAT, Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL), Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), Technical University at Delft, University at Buffalo, University in Oslo, University of Edinburgh and University of Leeds.
