Summary
Abstract: The Oceans and Ice Branch of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has processed
satellite radar altimetry and aircraft laser altimetry over the continental ice
sheets of Greenland and Antarctica and surrounding sea ice to calculate surface
elevations. The radar processing is currently being funded by the NASA Mission
to Planet Earth Pathfinder Program.
