Record #96649:

Surface velocities of Denman Glacier, Antarctica, derived from Landsat imagery (abstract) / Neal W. Young.

Title: Surface velocities of Denman Glacier, Antarctica, derived from Landsat imagery (abstract) / Neal W. Young.
Author(s): Young, Neal W.
Date: 1989.
Publisher: Cambridge: International Glaciological Society
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1989.), Vol. 12 (1989)
Abstract: Denman Glacier, Queen Mary Land, is clearly discernible on Landsat images and surface features are visible along most of length; these persist with time and move with glacier. Pilot project was undertaken to develop techniques for measurement of velocities directly on original digital image data rather than on photographic products, and to determine potential accuracy of results. Set of 120 velocity vectors were obtained with sufficient accuracy for many glaciological features to be clearly discerned, as well as details of velocity at different points, which represent most extensive set of movement data along length of major outlet glacier in Antarctica, covering both flow through grounded ice sheet and out through floating ice shelf.
