MEaSUREs Greenland Annual Ice Sheet Velocity Mosaics from SAR and Landsat, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, contains annual ice velocity mosaics for the Greenland Ice Sheet derived from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data obtained by TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X (TSX/TDX) and Copernicus Sentinel-1A and -1B satellites, and from Landsat 8 optical imagery for years 2015 and 2016. See Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) 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.
