Remote retrieval of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) over the Earth’s surface is a critical component of monitoring the surface processes of our planet. NDVI is a widely used and useful indicator of vegetation health and quantity ­ however its retrieval using satellite data is hindered by the frequent presence of clouds in the Earth...

In this study, an unsupervised classification approach is used to investigate and characterize the spatial and temporal variability of MetOp-A ASCAT backscatter (σ◦) and the TUW SMR vegetation parameters across mainland France between 2007 and 2017. Currently, soil moisture data is retrieved from ASCAT backscatter measurements using the TU Wien...

Snow in mountainous areas is of great importance for the water supply in many catchments. To get data on snow cover, ground station data is not enough and, in many catchments, not available. Therefore, satellite data is used to measure snow cover. In this thesis the MODIS daily snow cover dataset (MOD10A1) is used. These images are obstructed by...

The Greenland Ice Sheet is the world’s second largest ice sheet, storing an equivalent of 7.3 meters of sea level rise. Due to climate change, the Greenland ice sheet is currently losing mass at an accelerated rate. Ice sheet models are used to project long term melt of the ice sheet, which are often forced by output from climate models. Most of...

Methodology <br/>Agriculture is an important sector to provide in our needs. Since 2000, the arable land per farmer increased with 66%. To help farmers managing their increasing amount of arable land, it is important to develop new techniques in example based on remote sensing data. One of the key parameters for agricultural management is the...

Accurate information on Arctic sea ice thickness has been historically limited both spatially and temporally to spare submarine sonar measurements until the advent of satellite altimeters such as ICEsat (operating from 2002 to 2008) and CryoSat-2 (operating from 2011 to present day). This study aims to use the historical record of normalized...

Repeat-pass acquisitions with coherent Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems, preserving both phase and amplitude, are more readily available than ever (Bruzzone, 2016). Phase measurements from SAR systems have seen widespread use in the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture (InSAR) technique to measure deformations and elevations since the late...

Glaciers play an important role in sea level predictions and are an important supplier of fresh water. Understanding the physics and dynamics of glaciers is important in local and global climate predictions and predictions of fresh water supplies. The Himalayas are the biggest storage of fresh water outside the polar regions with many different...
