Surface Velocity of Ice Streams Measured by Satellite Imagery
Entry ID: NASA_CODE970_ICE_STREAM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Surface velocity measurements are extracted from sequential satellite
imagery (Landsat TM) of Ice Steams D and E in West Antarctica to
reveal a complex pattern of ice flow that was not apparent from
previous measurements. Over 75,000 surface velocity measurements were
made.
