Instrument

GLISTIN-A
Glacier and Ice Surface Topography Interferometer

A Ka-band single pass interferometric synthetic aperture radar with Ka-band center frequency that maximizes the single-pass interferometric accuracy (which is proportional to the wavelength), reduces snow penetration (when compared with lower frequencies), and remains relatively impervious to atmospheric attenuation.
