MEaSUREs InSAR-Based Antarctica Ice Velocity Map
Entry ID: NSIDC-0484

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, provides the first comprehensive, high-resolution, digital mosaics of ice motion in Antarctica assembled from multiple satellite interferometric synthetic-aperture radar data. Data were acquired during the International Polar Year 2007 to 2009. These maps were built from spring ... View entire text
