AbstractThe entire continent of Antarctica was mapped at a 25-meter resolution with synthetic aperture radar (SAR) during the Radarsat Antarctic Mapping Project (RAMP) over a 30-day period on the fall of 1997 providing a static snapshotof the ice sheet [1]. Since Radarsat-1 has a 24-day orbit cycle, repeat-pass interferometric SAR (InSAR) data was also acquired. The extensive InSAR data [1,2] will provide a view of ice sheet kinematics, for use in studies of glacier dynamics over vast unexplored areas. This information is required to determine the response of the Antarctic Ice Sheet to present and future climate change. In this paper we present the results of analysis of an InSAR pair for the Recovery Glacier, East Antarctica.
