Summary
Abstract: The work, funded by NSF grant number 0296099 is in collaboration with co-PI
Mark Fahnestock. We have used composite MODIS (on NASA's Terra satellite)
imagery of flow features in the Ross Ice Shelf to infer patterns and processes
of grounding line migration over time. This involves image processing (MF),
interpretation of visual features (MF & CLH), and numerical ... View entire text
