Title: Grounding line migration of Petermann Gletscher, north Greenland, detected using satellite radar interferometry
Authors: Rignot, Eric
Issue Date: 30-Nov-1997
Citation: USA
Abstract: Ice Sheet grounding lines are sensitive indicator of changes in ice thickness, sea level or elevation of the sea bed. Here, we use the synthetic-aperture radar interferometry technique to detect the migration of thel imit of tidal flexing, or hinge line, of Petermann Gletscher, a major outlet glacier of north Greenland which develops an extensive floating tongue.
