Collaborative Research: Elevation Change Anomalies in West Antarctica - Do They Provide Constraints on Subglacial Water Transport Beneath Ice Streams and Their TributariesEntry ID: 636719
Abstract: This data set includes information derived from ICESat altimetry for Antarctic subglacial lakes. These lakes were identified based on elevation changes observed from ICESat. For each lake we provide estimates of the lake boundary, as well as gridded elevation and volume changes.
Purpose: These data enable analysis of small-scale changes in ice sheet elevaiton which reflect the motion of subglacial water. These data illustrate the motion of subglacial water under the ice sheet which provides information about subglacial hydrology and how its patterns vary in time.
