Due to increasing global population and increasing food demand, crop yield needs to be improved to forestall potential food shortages. To achieve optimal crop yield, irrigation is applied to replace water losses due to evapotranspiration (ET). Information on ET should be applied to optimize water allocations and water use. In this study, the...

A variety of statistical methods are available to detect sudden changes, or breakpoints, in time series when used as multi-temporal change detection technique. However, these methods are unreliable in the presence of noise. Neural nets might detect breakpoints better. These deep learning models are able to generalize and optimize well, even in...

The TU-Wien developed a soil moisture retrieval algorithm that uses the incidence angle dependence of backscatter to obtain soil moisture estimates (Wagner et al., 1999). The core of this algorithm is a second order Taylor expansion with which the backscatter is normalized at a reference angle. Studies have shown that the first and second order...

Meteorites contain information on the formation and evolution of the Solar System. Antarctica is the most productive region for collecting meteorites, as the visually contrasting meteorites are easily detectable and tend to concentrate at specific areas exposing blue ice. Blue ice areas act as meteorite stranding surfaces (MSSs) if the flow of...

Understanding the river dynamics is very important to be able to make use of all river functions and to protect ourselves against floods. Hydrodynamic models are used to predict river behaviour and one of the input parameters is the river geometry. In-situ measuring of river geometry can be very expensive and time consuming. Remote sensing...

Nearly all major glaciers in Greenland have reduced in size over the last two decades. An increase in the amount of ice transported from the Greenland ice sheet to the oceans is predicted following an increase in Arctic air and ocean temperatures. One of the last glaciers with a floating ice shelf and draining a substantial area of the Greenland...

Blue ice areas, are areas in Antarctica where, either due to local heat sources (areas with lower albedo and thus more absorption of shortwave radiation - i.e. Nunataks) or high windspeed, all the snow is melted or eroded away and the underlying (blue) ice is visible. This occurs often around the grounding line between the ice sheet and ice...

This report contains the findings of a multidisciplinary project in Mozambique which ran from mid-November 2018 to mid-January 2019. This study is part of the IWACA-TECH project, which is an abbreviation for “Improved Water efficiency Control based on remote sensing TECHnologies. The goal is to increase water efficiency and crop yield without...

Climate on Earth is changing rapidly. In order to take the right measures it is important to know with which magnitude and rate the warming of the climate continues in the future. However, climate models currently predict different scenarios. The differing in response of shallow cumulus clouds to a warming climate explains the largest part of...

An accurate prediction of global sea-level rise requires that the cause of recent and intensifying glacier acceleration along the Antarctic ice sheet (AIS) coastal margins is understood. Ice shelf thinning and abrupt ice shelf collapse have been linked to surface melt that is prevalent across coastal Antarctica. Primarily, surface melt is...

As of yet, there is no consensus on the role of the cloud radiative effect (CRE) on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). This study focuses on the seasonal and temporal variability of the CRE, to better understand the response of the firn. To do so, we combine satellite observations, climate-model output, and a snow model. We separate short-term and...

In the second half of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century the amount of natural disasters has increased rapidly. Due to this rise in occurrences, more people are affected. An important indicator for people affected is the amount of damage to buildings. To gather this information aid workers now have to go into the field to gather data on...

Climate change has been a heated topic in recent years, and the mass loss of ice sheets is one aspect of it. The Antarctic Ice Sheet has experienced certain mass loss in the form of ice-shelf collapse and (sub-)surface melting, but thorough study remains limited due to the remote location of the continent. Therefore, remote sensing is expected...

Recent studies have shown that processes like the thinning of the ice shelves, the acceleration of the outlet glaciers and the collapses of the ice shelves are connected to surface melting. Several ice shelves at the Antarctic Peninsula, a region that has experienced an atmospheric warming much larger than the global average, have retreated and...

The region of Coquimbo, Chile, is located adjacent to the dry Andes. Water is scarce, and with very little precipitation during spring and summer, water supply in these seasons depends mostly on melt water from snow in the Andes mountains. <br/>A project funded by the local government was conducted by CEAZA, a research institute based in the...

The Tibetan Plateau is a vast elevated plateau in Central and East Asia. It contains thousands of glaciers and other geographical features. Through this area rivers like the Brahmaputra is flowing and making a basin providing about millions of people a home. <br/>The last years global warming has been a focus of public and scientific debate. Not...
