GLAS/ICESat 1 km Laser Altimetry Digital Elevation Model of Greenland, Version 1
Entry ID: NSIDC-0305_1


Summary
Abstract: The Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) instrument on the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) provides global measurements of elevation, and repeats measurements along nearly-identical tracks; its primary mission is to measure changes in ice volume (mass balance) over time. This digital elevation model (DEM) of Greenland is derived from GLAS/ICESat laser altimetry profile data ... View entire text
