Data set update: MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity Map from InSAR Data, Version 2

The MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet Velocity Map from InSAR Data, Version 2 data set has been updated to include data from Winter 2017/2018 and is available from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, contains seasonal (winter) ice-sheet-wide velocity maps for Greenland. The maps are derived from Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) data obtained by the Canadian Space Agency’s (CSA) RADARSAT-1, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s (JAXA) Advanced Land Observation Satellite (ALOS), and the German Aerospace Center’s (DLR) TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X (TSX/TDX) satellites, as well as from the European Space Agency’s (ESA) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar data from Copernicus Sentinel-1A and -1B.

Additional changes include updating the shapefiles from winters 2014 to 2018, changing the velocity magnitude file name, and changing the missing data value for the velocity magnitude (vv) files to -1 and setting it as the attribute in all files.
