MEaSURES Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) Digital Elevation Model, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set consists of an enhanced resolution digital elevation model (DEM) for the Greenland Ice Sheet. It was constructed by combining ASTER and SPOT 5 DEMs over the ice sheet periphery and margin with AVHRR photoclinometry for the interior and far north, and calibrating the data to approximate mean ICESat/GLAS elevations from 2003 to 2009. See Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) for related data.
