Sea Level from Space - directed satellite applications catapult knowledge exchange fellowship

Lead Research Organisation: University of Leeds
Department Name: School of Earth and Environment

Abstract

Contemporary sea level rise, and the associated flood and coastal change that accompanies it, is recognized as posing the greatest climate change risk to the UK. The high cost of installing and maintaining flood defences along the 17,800 kilometre length of the UK's coastline makes it essential that decisions are informed by the latest knowledge of what the present and future sea level rise is likely to be. Satellite observations have a critical role to play in this task as they provide the only possible method for continuous monitoring, however, this information is not routinely used by the UK government or local authorities to inform coastal planning strategies. Therefore, the aim of this NERC Knowledge Exchange fellowship is to promote the uptake of mature Earth observation data in the development of tools that help address the challenge of sea level rise in the UK.
 
Description that the most up to date sea level rise numbers may not be used when planning the UK's sea level defenses, but organisations such as the Environment Agency are extremely engaged with the idea of using satellite data to address this challenge.
Exploitation Route this can be applied to other grpographical regions.

Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact CPOM researchers based at Leeds contributed to a new ESA FutureLearn MOOC on the Greenland ice sheet. Topics covered included Satellite Earth Observation technology, terminology and the types of data products available when monitoring ice sheets; understanding the unique measurements of ice thickness and dynamics which satellite data can provide; how to access process and work with Earth observation data and ice sheet measuring tools; and the use of Earth observation data in a range of scientific, policy and decision-making areas, in conjunction with models.

Title CPOM NRT Ice Velocity Portal 
Description This data portal distributes frequent maps of ice velocity for key outlet glaciers of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets in near real time. The velocity maps are produced by tracking moving features in synthetic aperture radar data acquired by the European Space Agency's Sentinel-1 satellite. 
Type Of Material Database/Collection of data 
Year Produced 2016 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact I produce and deliver measurements of Antarctic and Greenland glacier speed, from near time data acquired by ESA's Sentinel-1. These data are used for research, and in award winning school outreach projects in partnership with the UK Space Agency.

PI Contribution We are the scientific lead and principal investigator (SL/PI) on this project. The project will produce, validate and deliver surface elevation change, ice velocity, grounding line and gravimetry mass balance data sets derived from satellite observations, to the scientific community. In addition to directing the overall science strategy and publication outputs from the project, we are the lead science team responsible for the surface elevation change EO data product, which the UCL MSSL team also contribute to. We are also responsible for coordinating Task 1 which includes defining the requirements baseline, the input EO data set availability and output product specification, and Task 5 where we work with a group of independent ice sheet modelers and climate experts to assess and report on the quality of the satellite products developed each year.
Collaborator Contribution DLR are the lead science team responsible for the grounding line product, ENVEO are the lead science team responsible for the ice velocity product and the technical university of Dresden are the lead science team responsible for the gravimetry mass balance project. BAS are responsible for coordinating the independent climate research group which performs the annual climate assessment on the usefulness of the products generated. this includes contributions from experts at the university of Utrecht, University of Exciter, University of Hamburg and TUDelft. S&T norway are responsible for all project management within the project
Impact We have delivered a requirements baseline document following an open consultation of the scientific community via a questionnaire advertised on the cryolist community mailing list, and a dataset access and product specification manual, all of which are available on the project website. Surface elevation change (SEC) data is now available via the CPOM UCL web portal. This provides a monthly time series of surface elevation change measured over 25 years of satellite altimetry and includes data from ERS-1/2, ENVISAT, CryoSat-2 and Sentinel-3. The time series and maps of SEC and related parameters can be viewed for each Antarctic drainage basin and ice sheet area. Full access to the data is via a simple user registration and site login. A new digital elevation model (DEM) mapping the surface topography of Antarctica has also been produced, available to download from the CPOM portal. This has a wide range of applications from planning fieldwork to modelling changes to the ice sheet.

The ECV parameters provide consistent, long term data sets for climate modelling and sea level change, dating back to the first ERS satellite measurements in 1991.
Collaborator Contribution DTU-S are science lead on the project, S&T are the project management and systems team, TuDr contribute to the gravimetry algorithm development, ENVEO contribute the ice velocity, grounding line and calving front products.
Impact ECVs for surface elevation change are computed and updated at regular intervals. Data sets are provided to users on the the project data website http://products.esa-icesheets-cci.org/.

Description ORCHESTRA 
Organisation British Antarctic Survey
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution CPOM's role in ORCHESTRA focuses on providing satellite observations of sea ice freeboard and sea surface height between sea ice floes. This will exploit CPOM's 14 years of experience in the use of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data to study ice motion, and 19 years of experience in the use of altimeter data to study ice elevation changes.
Collaborator Contribution ORCHESTRA LTS-M programme represents an ambitious coordinated deployment of NERC National Capability (NC) funding to address one of the most important and pressing environmental issues facing us: the role of the ocean in dictating present and future climatic change. The scale and complexity of this issue is such that a collective approach involving each of the relevant NC supported institutes is required, along with the creation of effective national and international linkages to relevant institutes and programmes around the world. The ORCHESTRA grouping has strong track records in each of the elements required, including ambitious fieldwork programmes to measure and understand the pattern and variability of ocean circulation, advanced ocean and climate modelling studies [3, 4], the development and implementation of innovative Earth Observation techniques, and the design and use of novel platforms and sensors. The ORCHESTRA partners have demonstrable expertise in delivering world-class strategic results from these programmes, in order to tackle a range of the most pressing scientific questions.
