Group: Summary

   This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in 
   Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, consists of two high-resolution 
   digital mosaics of ice motion in Central Antarctica. The mosaics were 
   assembled from satellite interferometric synthetic-aperture radar (InSAR) data 
   acquired by RADARSAT-1 in 1997 and by RADARSAT-2 in 2009.

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