Summary
Abstract: This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth Science Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, provides the first comprehensive, high-resolution, digital mosaic 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. This map was built from spring 2009 ... View entire text
