Short Name:

Airborne Radar-Derived Accumulation Rates over Pine Island and Thwaites Glaciers

This data set includes radar-derived annual accumulation rates over Thwaites Glacier between 1980 and 2009 and a gridded climatology (1985-2009) of snow accumulation over Pine Island and Thwaites Glaciers.
