MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity Map from InSAR Data V001
Entry ID: NSIDC-0478_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, contains seasonal (winter) ice-sheet-wide velocity maps for Greenland derived from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) data obtained by RADARSAT-1, the Advanced Land Observation Satellite (ALOS), and the TerraSAR-X satellite.

Purpose: Scientific Research
