MEaSUREs Antarctic Grounding Line from Differential Satellite Radar Interferometry, Version 2

Version 2 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, provides 22 years of comprehensive high-resolution mapping of grounding lines in Antarctica, derived using differential satellite synthetic aperture radar interferometry (DInSAR) data from the Earth Remote Sensing Satellites 1 and 2 (ERS-1 and ERS-2), RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2, the Advanced Land Observing System Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (ALOS PALSAR), Cosmo Skymed, and Copernicus Sentinel-1 for years 1992 to 2014. See MEaSUREs Ice Velocity Mapping of the Antarctic Ice Sheet 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 from this documentation.
