Dr Natalia Galin

Dr Galin’s Scholarship provided an opportunity to continue her research at the Centre for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) at the University of Kansas and NASA/Goddard Space Flight Centre in Maryland.

Her research aimed to bring together geophysics and radar engineering to develop an airborne radar capable of measuring the depth of the snow cover on Antarctic sea ice. Her work assisted in the development of new radar tools and satellite sensors equipped with more accurate instrumentation, and the potential to estimate other physical properties of snow.
