This map shows the spatial distribution of the rate of elevation change (dH/dt) from 1978 to 1988 for southern Greenland (south of 72.1°N) from Seasat and Geosat radar altimeter data. It shows a 2000 m surface elevation contour, the ice divide, and the locations of nine shallow and three deeper ice cores in the study area (Davis et al. 2001).
Uncorrected spatial distribution of elevation change from 1978 to 1988 (Davis et al. 2001, adapted from Davis et al. 2000).
