Data sets

Surface displacement and velocity models at Lake NamCo (Tibetan Plateau) derived from Sentinel-1 data via InSAR time series analysis E. Reinosch, J. Buckel, J. Dong, M. Gerke, J. Baade, and B. Riedel

Short summary
In this research we present the results of our satellite analysis of a permafrost landscape and periglacial landforms in mountainous regions on the Tibetan Plateau. We study seasonal and multiannual surface displacement processes, such as the freezing and thawing of the ground, seasonally accelerated sliding on steep slopes, and continuous permafrost creep. This study is the first step of our goal to create an inventory of actively moving landforms within the Nyainqêntanglha range.
