Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Elevation Changes From ICESat and ATM


This data set includes gridded surface elevation change rates for the Greenland Ice Sheet between 2003 and 2009, the operational time period of Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat). The data set was made from a combination of ICESat and Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) data, processed using the SERAC method developed at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo. The data files consist of elevation change curves for 2003-2009 at 6000 locations on the Greenland Ice sheet.
