Group: Summary

   This data set (NSIDC-0484), part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records 
   for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program, provides the first 
   comprehensive, high-resolution, digital mosaics of ice motion in Antarctica 
   assembled from multiple satellite interferometric synthetic-aperture radar 
   systems. The majority of the data were acquired during the International Polar 
   Year 2007 to 2009. Additional data were utilized as needed to maximize 
   coverage. Mosaics are available at 450 m and 900 m spacings.

   Note: These data are considered provisional pending a review 
   by the MEaSUREs program. Once the data have been reviewed, this statement will 
   be removed from this documentation.
