Seasonal fluctuations of Hansbreen terminus position

The position of the terminus of Hansbreen is derived with very high frequency in the period 1991–2015. Over 160 multispectral and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data were used: LANDSAT 5, LANDSAT 7, LANDSAT 8, Terra ASTER, Alos AVNIR, SPOT 5, ERS-1, ERS-2, ENVISAT, Alos PALSAR, TerraSAR-X, TanDEM-X, and Sentinel-1. Terra ASTER images were orthorectified with use of 2008 DEM SPOT and geocoded in PCI Geomatica and ArcGIS software. Multispectral, already terrain-corrected images were rectified in ArcGIS software. SAR data were provided at the Single Look Complex level and that both radiometric and geometric corrections were applied using the same methods, and with the same digital elevation model (2008 DEM SPOT). The SAR data were processed in BEAM ( Sentinel data downloaded from the Sentinel’s Data Hub were already processed. The satellite data were digitized manually to obtain the front position.
