OSARIS method paper published

In a Methods Article in Frontiers in Earth Science, the application of OSARIS to investigate cryospheric changes in a high mountain environment in the Tien Shan, Kyrgyzstan, is demonstrated. Besides backgrounds on concept, processing scheme, and modules, the paper includes: Examples of detailed coherence time series and their visualization using OSARIS’ box plot tool, Example …

OGGM article and version 1.1.1

The Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM) team has recently published an article in Geoscientific Model Development, demonstrating the capabilities of the tool. OGGM version 1.1.1 includes several minor enhancements, including improved handling of merged glaciers, the option to add custom mass balance data, and ALOS World 3D 30m as an alternative DEM.

OGGM joins CryoTools

With the ‘Open Global Glacier Model‘ a comprehensive modelling suite for physiographic glacier characteristics and medium to long term glacier changes joins our community. Based on a modular and highly automatized workflow realized in Python, OGGM provides routines for investigating a variety of glaciological parameters, including flowlines, altitude-area distributions, mass balance, and ice thickness.

Tutorial on OSARIS basics

A new tutorial is available, demonstrating how to create a new OSARIS project from scratch. It aims to enable users with few experience in Sentinel-1 data, interferometric processing, Linux command line, etc., to work with the software and thus contains a lot of details. To start the tutorial, you will only need a working installation …

OSARIS reaches milestone 0.7

After more than half a year of development, the new version represents a major step forward for the ‘Open Source SAR Investigation System’. Further automation substantially reduced manual configuration efforts, output data is now consistently stored as analysis-ready geocoded stacks, and processing efficiency was further increased. New features include: Automatic merging of Sentinel-1 swaths Automatic …
