Over the last 12 months the NASA/JPL UAVSAR instrument has collected L-band repeat pass interferometric data over glaciers and ice sheets in Greenland and Iceland. Also, a Ka-band single pass interferometric radar augmentation to the UAVSAR radar for measuring ice sheet topography collected data over Greenland. The L-band repeat data has been used to estimate rates of temporal decorrelation and glacier velocities. We have generated some initial topographic products from the Ka-band interferometer, however, detailed studies of this data has just begun. This paper will present some initial results from the L-band and Ka-band systems over ice.
