Abstract

This paper investigates the detection of Coherent Scatterers (CSs) in Ice and Glacier terrain by means of Ter-raSAR-X images in the test case of the Helheim Glacier in Greenland. CSs are evaluated with respect to detec-tion, properties and potential applications. The detection of CSs by means of TerraSAR-X data is discussed and optimised detection schemata for minimising false alarm rate are investigated. Properties and quality of the de-tected CSs are analysed.
