Antarctica & Sea Ice1290 viewsReduced-resolution image from QuikScat sigma-0 measurements. This image shows Antarctica and the surrounding sea ice on July 1999.
1465 viewsThis map shows the spatial distribution of the rate of elevation change from the Elevation Change of the Southern Greenland Ice Sheet from 1978-1988 data set. The data was acquired 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.
