Abstract:
Ice velocity field for the Lambert-Amery glacial basin, Antarctica are derived based on three-pass Radarsat SAR interferometric data acquired in 2000. Two grids are given in ArcInfo interchangable format. One shows the motion speed in unit of meter per year, and the other shows the motion azimuthal direction in degree. The spatial resolution is 400 m. The grids are in Polar Stereographic projection with reference to WGS84 ellipsoid.
