Description :

IV time series of Upernavik glacier 1992-2010 generated using ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat and PALSAR data.

Comments :

Ice velocity time series of the Upernavik region in Greenland, derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1/2, ASAR and PALSAR data acquired between 02-01-1992 and 22-08-2010.

This data set is part of the ESA Greenland Ice sheet CCI project. It provides components of the ice velocity and the magnitude of the velocity.

The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 500m grid spacing.

The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided.

Please note that the previous version (1.0) of this product provided the horizontal velocities as true East and North velocities.

Both a single NetCDF file (including all measurements and annotation), and separate geotiff files with the velocity components (vx, vy, vz and vv (magnitude of the horizontal components) ) are provided.

The product was generated by GEUS. For further details, please consult the document:
