UAVSAR – Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar

Thursday, January 30, 2014

UAVSAR has embarked on a week-long Iceland deployment on January 28 to study the processes of glacier melting (PI: Mark Simons), a major contributor to rising sea levels.  We previously imaged two Icelandic ice caps in June 2012 to measure the glacier melt in the summer.  This is a return trip to image the same ice caps to study the glacier melt in winter months. A JPL press release is posted on the NASA site:
