MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet Mosaics from SAR Data, Version 1
Entry ID: NSIDC-0633_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, contains high resolution mosaics of radar backscatter for the Greenland Ice Sheet derived from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. Both calibrated and uncalibrated mosaics are available for: the winters of 2000-2001, 2005-2006 through 2008-2009, and 2012-2013; and a multiyear composite. Uncalibrated mosaics are available for the winter of 2009-2010. All mosaics are provided at both 100 m and 20 m resolutions.
