  • Multitemporal Terrestrial Laser Scanning Point Clouds for Thaw Subsidence Observation

    New paper on “Multitemporal Terrestrial Laser Scanning Point Clouds for Thaw Subsidence Observation at Arctic Permafrost Monitoring Sites” The paper investigates different methods for quantifying thaw subsidence using terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) point clouds. Thaw subsidence is a slow (mm‐cm per year) vertical displacement of the ground surface common in ice‐rich permafrost‐underlain landscapes. It is […]

  • PermaSAR project concluded with publication of final report

    With the publication of the final report, the PermaSAR project is concluded. In the blink of an eye regarding timescales of permafrost monitoring, research within the project period covered diverse methods and analyses around the topic of permafrost and related thaw subsidence in Arctic tundra landscapes. The report (in German) provides all details on the […]

  • Estimating tree height from TanDEM-X data at the northwestern Canadian treeline

    A new paper on tree height estimation from TanDEM-X data has just been published in Remote Sensing of Environment. The article finds that tree height can be predicted using TanDEM-X metrics (backscatter, bistatic coherence, and interferometric height) in the sparse forest patches of the Arctic treeline zone at the transition from forest to tundra. Taking […]
