Description:

Abstract:

This data set contains surface velocities of Taylor Glacier, Antarctica, for the year 2003. Measurement period was approximately 12 months. There are approximately 250 locations in this data set. The data set includes a location name, the easting and northing coordinates (UTM), the elevation, the velocity magnitude, the east component of velocity, the north component of velocity, and the vertical component of velocity. Data are available in comma-delimited ASCII text format and are available via FTP.
