  • ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (Greenland_Ice_Sheet_cci): Ice Velocity time series for the Upernavik glacier from ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat and PALSAR data for 1992-2010, v1.2
  • 2024-07-21 01:32:00
  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Upernavik glacier in Greenland, derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat and PALSAR data aquired between 02/01/1992 and 22/08/2010. The data provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity, and has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project.The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 500m grid spacing. The image pairs used have a repeat cycle between 1 and 35 days. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NOTHING(y) directions of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. The product was generated by GEUS (Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland).
