Description :

Optical IV of 8 main outlet glaciers between 2019-05-01 and 2019-08-29, generated using S2 data.

Comments :

Optical ice velocity time series and seasonal product of 8 outlet glaciers in Greenland (Hagen, Helheim, Kangerdlugssuaq, Jakobshavn, Petermann, Upernavik, Zachariae, 79Fjord), derived from intensity-tracking of Sentinel-2 data acquired between 2019-05-01 and 2019-08-29.

This data set is part of the ESA Greenland Ice sheet CCI+ project. It provides components of the ice velocity within a NetCDF file. The file is including all measurements and annotation.

The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG 3413:Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 250m grid spacing.

The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING (x) and NORTHING (y) direction of the grid.

A high resolution version 50m is available upon request: if interested, please contact Daniele Fantin:
