Abstract：The flow rates of glaciers hold special significance in the analysis of the mass balance of the Antarctic ice sheet and its effect on sea-level rise and global climate change. In this study, ALOS/PALSAR imagery was combined with a digital elevation model, and the synthetic aperture radar intensity feature tracking method was used to obtain the upstream glacier velocity of the Amery Ice Shelf. The results showed that the flow rate of the main streamline ranged from 540 to 720 m·a-1 in the upstream region of the Amery Ice Shelf, and gradually decreased with decreasing elevation. Under the influence of bedrock and highlands on the two sides of the shelf, the flow rate of the main streamline was negatively correlated to the distance from the surrounding highlands. This result is in accord with the flow rate that was measured by NASA in 2000 using the radar repeat track interferometry method. Our analysis using bare rocks as reference points indicates that the associated error is relatively small and the ice flow rate obtained by this approach is reliable.
