MODIS image composite of the Ross Ice Shelf
Entry ID: UNHEOS_ROSS_ICE_SHELF_MODIS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A composite MODIS image map of the Ross Ice Shelf at 250 m pixel spacing was
produced as part of an NSF-OPP project studying the history of flow variations
from the ice streams feeding the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica. This material is
based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No.
0242465.

The composite MODIS image is a ... View entire text
