Tip and Cue Case Studies

Understanding Tip and Cue monitoring is one thing. Seeing its capabilities and applications is another. 

Below, we take a look at some examples of tangible applications for Tip and Cue strategies. 

Monitoring Polar Ice Melt with Tip and Cueing

In a recent study conducted by a team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, researchers used the ‘Tip and Cue’ approach to combine elevation data of an arctic ice sheet from two different satellites and sensors - evaluating the accuracy of the methodology using separate datasets from highly accurate earth observation satellites.
