In April 2015 we installed a radar level sensor on the bridge in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to monitor water levels in near real time in one of the largest glacial fed rivers in Greenland. We partnered with Dave Finnegan and Adam LeWinter at CRREL to design and install the sensor.
Here are some photos of Adam LeWinter and I completing the installation in April 2015.
Check out the case study that Sutron put together about our installation and a pdf of the Sutron Project Profile report.
My name is Lincoln H Pitcher. I am a graduate student in the Department of Geography at UCLA. My research focuses hydrologic and cryospheric systems and interfaces with emerging ground, air and spaceborne remote sensing and geospatial technologies. I aim to use these emerging technologies to enhance understanding of remote and logistically inaccessible places. My current research focuses on both Greenland and Arctic Alaska.
