Oceans cover a significant part of the Earth's surface. The coupling between the upper ocean and the atmosphere is very complicated with defied theoretical understanding, while it is essential for climate studies, weather prediction, and marine ecosystems. With the advent of spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems, surface signatures...

Stereo Thermo-Optically Enhanced Radar for Earth, Ocean, Ice, and land Dynamics (STEREOID) is one of the candidates of the ESA (European Space Agency) , Earth Explorer 10 missions. The novel constellation system will consist of the active Sentinel-1 satellites and two passive spacecrafts, which can provide flexible baseline configurations. The...

Natural or man-made disasters can have a drastic impact on social, economic and environmental aspects of an affected population. Specifically, earthquakes are one of the most potent natural hazards, which cause a disproportionate amount of fatalities, primarily due to a) unexpected building collapses, b) restricted or limited access to basic...

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...

Humanitarian crises related to building and infrastructure damage, i.e. natural hazards and collateral damage during warfare, result in many hundreds of thousands of casualties on a yearly base. Earthquakes, for example, are responsible for taking around 50.000 lives on a yearly base due to falling debris and collapsing buildings, making them...

Direct measurement of ocean surface velocity from space with a Synthetic Aperture Radar has shown to be a promising method to observe ocean surface currents. In this thesis report a method for Total Surface Current Vector (TSCV) retrieval using an experimental Bidirectional (BiDi) Along-Track Interferometric (ATI) acquisition mode with TanDEM-X...

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...
