MEaSUREs Antarctic Grounding Line from Differential Satellite Radar Interferometry
Entry ID: NSIDC-0498

[ 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 17 years of comprehensive high-resolution mapping of grounding lines in Antarctica, derived using differential satellite synthetic aperture radar interferometry (DInSAR) data from the Earth Remote Sensing Satellites 1 and 2 (ERS-1 and ERS-2), RADARSAT-1, RADARSAT-2, and ...
