Surface velocity fields of Ice Streams D and E derived from repeat satellite imagerySequential Landsat TM images were used to map in detail the surface velocity of Ice Streams D and E by tracking small ice features in coregistered images. The majority of both ice streams have now been mapped for velocity, and in most areas, approximate strain-rates are also determined. Tracking was accomplished semiautomatically using an image-to-image cross-correlation technique. Measurement density is roughly four per sq km in regions with distinct surface features (crevasses, snow dunes, etc.), and with cloud-free image coverage.
