Group: Summary

   This data set provides a coastline history of the eastern Amundsen Sea 
   Embayment and terminus histories of its outlet glaciers derived from those 
   coastlines. These outlet glaciers include Smith, Haynes, Thwaites, and Pine 
   Island Glaciers. The coastlines were derived from detailed tracing  of Landsat 
   imagery between late 1972 and late 2011 (at a scale of 1:50,000). The data set 
   also uses some additional data from other sources. The terminus histories are 
   calculated as the intersections between these coastlines and 1996 flowlines.

   Data are available via FTP in ESRI shapefile and comma separated value (.csv) 
   formats.
