Group: Summary

   This data set contains lake boundaries, volume changes, and gridded elevations 
   for 124 active subglacial lakes beneath the Antarctic ice sheet. Lakes were 
   identified using laser altimetry data obtained from 2003 to 2009 by NASA's 
   Ice, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) mission. The data are 
   provided in Keyhole Markup Language (KML), comma-separated values (CSV), and 
   GEOTiff formats, and are available via FTP.
