In , a joint effort by NASA and the CSA culminated in the creation of the RADARSAT Antarctic Mapping Project (RAMP). The project was conducted collaboratively by the Byrd Polar Research Center, Vexcel Corporation, the Alaska Satellite Facility, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), with funding from NASA's Pathfinder Program. In , Multi-Year Ice Mapping System (MIMS) at the University of Colorado was developed to quickly identify of the high-latitude old ice using uncalibrated SAR images from RADARSAT. A local dynamic thresholding algorithm using the Fisher criterion automatically maps and contours multiyear (old) by: 1. operational requirements to support the second Antarctic Mapping Mission (AMM-2) which is part of the RADARSAT-1 Antarctic Mapping Project (RAMP). The document includes activities to be conducted by the team members including NASA, Canadian Space Agency, ASF, JPL, Vexcel, GSFC, WFF, OSU, ERIM, and the Antarctic Mapping Planning Group. Location of Field Activities (Arctic, Antarctic or Bipolar) Bipolar Which IPY themes are addressed (insert X where appropriate) 1. Current state of the environment X 4. Exploring new frontiers X 2. Change in the polar regions X 5. The polar regions as vantage points 3. Polar-global linkages/tele-connections X 6.
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. RADARSAT data from the Antarctic Mapping Mission are used interferometrically to solve for the 3-dimensional surface ice motion in the interior of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS).
