Abstract

Noncoherent light speckle methods have been successfully applied to gauge the motion of glaciers and buildings. Resolution of the optical method was limited by the aberrating turbulent atmosphere through which the images were collected. Sensitivity limitations regarding this particular application of speckle interferometry are discussed and analyzed. Resolution limit experiments that were incidental to glacier flow studies are related to the basic theory of astronomical imaging. Optical resolution of the ice flow measurement technique is shown to be in substantial agreement with the sensitivity predictions of astronomy theory.
