The aim of Task 1 is the preparation of “products” which could serve for monitoring rock glacier kinematics as an associated parameter of the ECV (Essential Climate Variable) Permafrost


Key points:

  • Promoting the use of satellite SAR interferometry, e.g. Sentinel-1 data, but more generally remote sensing data, for monitoring the rock glacier activity at a regional scale and define appropriate standards and guidelines
  • Integrate as far as possible local-scale monitoring data based on aerial and terrestrial geodetic surveys
  • Setting up of standard guidelines for selecting an appropriate number of rock glaciers per region that can be then used to assess temporal trends with decadal to intra-decadal time steps (product for ECV Permafrost)
