The aim of Task 2 was the generation of rock glacier velocity time series in a climate-oriented perspective, meaning data records can contribute to the GCOS Essential Climate Variable (ECV) Permafrost.
- Promoting the use of satellite SAR interferometry, e.g. Sentinel-1 data, but more generally remote sensing data, for monitoring the rock glacier velocity at regional scales and defining appropriate guidelines
- Integrate as far as possible local-scale monitoring data based on aerial and terrestrial geodetic surveys
- Setting up of guidelines for selecting an appropriate number of rock glaciers per region that can be then used to assess temporal trends in velocity with decadal to intra-decadal time steps
