Abstract: GLAH14 contains the land elevation and elevation distribution corrected for geodetic and atmospheric affects calculated from algorithms fine-tuned for over land returns. Data granules contain 14 orbits of data within the land mask.

Purpose: GLAH14 contains GLAS land elevation data that includes geolocation and reflectance plus the geodetic, instrument, and atmospheric corrections used. Parameters are at the full 40Hz resolution for locations that fall within the ICESat land mask. Each GLAH14 file was created from an equivalent GLA14 binary file. The data used to create the GLAH14 values are contained in the equivalent GLAHxx files for the GLAxx files. See the provenance metadata for the creation of the GLA14.
