Summary
Abstract: GLAH12 contains the ice sheet elevation and elevation distribution corrected for geodetic and atmospheric affects calculated from algorithms fine-tuned for ice sheet returns. Data granules contain 14 orbits of data within the ice sheet mask.

Purpose: GLAH12 contains ice sheet elevation and elevation distribution calculated from algorithms fine-tuned for ice sheet returns for use by researchers. Parameters are at the full 40Hz resolution that fall within the ICESat ice sheet mask. Each GLAH12 file was created from an equivalent GLA12 binary file. The data used to create the GLAH12 values are contained in the equivalent GLAHxx files for the GLAxx files. See the provenance metadata for the creation of the GLA12.
