Short Name:

Basal shear stress under Antarctic and Greenland glaciers infered from surface observations by means of inverse methods

This data set consists of basal shear stress under several regions in Antarctica and Greenland. The basal shear stress is obtained by means of the inverse methods using observed ice surface and bed elevation and surface velocities. The data are available via FTP, and are provided on a rectangular grid in a native Matlab (mat) format and in Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) format. The project was conducted between September 2009 and December 2013.
