Improving high resolution SAR speckle tracking for measuring glacier motion

Description: The surface of a glacier produces a distinct pattern of intensity variations, known as speckle, when imaged with synthetic aperture radar (SAR). Glacier motion is often measured by tracking this speckle pattern as it moves down glacier. This project seeks to improve the overall accuracy of speckle tracking and leverage the ultra-high resolution modes of modern SAR sensors to detect discontinuous glacier motion.
