MEaSUREs InSAR-Based Ice Velocity Maps of Central Antarctica: 1997 and 2009 V001

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, consists of two high-resolution digital mosaics of ice motion in Central Antarctica. The mosaics were assembled from satellite interferometric synthetic-aperture radar (InSAR) data acquired by RADARSAT-1 in 1997 and by RADARSAT-2 in 2009. See Antarctic Ice Sheet Velocity and Mapping Data for related data. Note: These data are considered provisional pending a review by the MEaSUREs program. Once the data have been reviewed, this statement will be removed.
