Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Greenland_Ice_Sheet_cci project has released new Greenland-wide ice velocity data (2014-15, from the ESA Sentinel-1 mission), as well as new composite elevation change data from the period 1992-2014 from the ESA ERS-1,-2, Envisat and Cryosat-2 missions. The new data are an addition to existing Greenland CCI data on coastal and basin velocity (1995-2011), as well as calving front locations (1992-2011) and grounding lines (1995-96) for a number of Greenland glaciers.

The data sets are provided as part of the European Space Agency Climate Change Initiative, http://cci.esa.int. Data providers for the CCI data include DTU-Space and GEUS (Denmark), ENVEO (Austria), Nansen Centre for Environmental Research and S&T (Norway). Data can be downloaded, along with requested citations for use of data, at http://products.esa-icesheets-cci.org/
