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.
