Data set update: MEaSUREs Phase-Based Antarctica Ice Velocity Map

New data access options are available for the MEaSUREs Phase-Based Antarctica Ice Velocity Map, Version 1 data set, accessible from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). The direct download location for this MEaSUREs (Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments) data set has changed.

This data set combines interferometric phases from multiple satellite interferometric synthetic-aperture radar systems to derive the first comprehensive phase-based map of Antarctic ice velocity. Phase-derived velocity mostly covers the years between 2007 and 2018, while tracking-derived velocity (for regions along the coasts) is mostly found in the years from 2013 to 2017. Additional data acquired between 1996 and 2018 were used as needed to maximize coverage.
