Abstract: This data set is part of the NASA Making Earth Science Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) project. This data set provides maps of glacier outlet areas, some of which have shown profound velocity changes over the MEaSUREs observation period from 2000 to 2010. The data are provided in addition to the ice-sheet-wide data from the related data set, MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet ... View entire text
