John Paden is the signal processing lead at the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets. He is a Co-Investigator on the MELT project. Paden will assist in the Accumulation Radar system engineering and he and a graduate student will process the Accumulation Radar data. This radar is taking airborne measurements along flow-lines aligned with each of the MELT field sites. The measurements will be repeated three times to measure melt rates. These measurements will also assist in choosing the locations for ground based work.
