   Note that if the glacier terminated in the sea, the glacier terminus was not 
   measured and the Minimum glacier elevation field was left blank in the data

Group: Summary

   The inventory includes 5,297 Glaciers from west Greenland between 59 to 71 
   degrees latitude north and 43 to 53 degrees longitude west. The glacier data 
   basin division is based on a simplified version of the World Glacier 
   Monitoring Service (WGMS) system.  Data are based on 1:250000 maps, Landsat 
   imagery, and aerial photos that were taken between 1948 and 1985.
