We are pleased that the German Research Foundation (DFG) funds the project “Large-scale Automatic Calving Front Segmentation and Frontal Ablation Analysis of Arctic Glaciers using Synthetic-Aperture Radar Image Sequences (LASSI)”. The 3 years research project aims to develop computer vision methods in order to investigate glacier front fluctuations, frontal ablation, and driving forces of frontal ablation in the Arctic.

This project is a joint project with our collaborators from the Geography Department (Thorsten Seehaus) and the Pattern Recognition Lab (Vincent Christlein, Nora Gourmelon).
