Description :

IV map of Greenland from Sentinel-1 SAR data acquired from 2015-10-01 to 2016-10-31.

Comments :

Ice velocity map of Greenland from Copernicus Sentinel-1 SAR data acquired from 2015-10-01 to 2016-10-31. The dataformat is 3-layer GeoTiff: the first two layers represent the horizontal displacement component easting and northing respectively in output map coordinates and converted to meters per day [m/d]. The third layer represents the vertical velocity and is derived from the height difference along the displacement vector taken from a DEM. Also included is a 1-layer geocoded GeoTiff representing magnitude of velocity in meters per day [m/d]. The product was generated by ENVEO.
