Ablation Rates of Taylor Glacier, Antarctica
This data set provides glacier surface ablation rates for a network of approximately 250 sites on Taylor Glacier, spanning a period from 2003 to 2011. Here sublimation is the dominant ablation mechanism, though a few sites have accumulation. Ablation data are provided in meters water equivalent per year.
Data are available via FTP in space-delimited ASCII format.
