MEaSUREs Releases New High-Resolution Greenland SAR Mosaics

The Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program, at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC), is pleased to announce the release of a new data set.

MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Sheet Mosaics from SAR Data consists of the following high-resolution mosaics derived from synthetic aperture radar (SAR): uncalibrated and sigma naught calibrated C-band mosaics from RADARSAT-1 for the winters of 2000–2001, 2005–2006 through 2008–2009, and 2012–2013; and uncalibrated ALOS Phased Array type L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (PALSAR) mosaics for the winter of 2009–2010. In addition, a RADARSAT-1 multiyear composite is available for 2000-2009. All mosaics are provided at both 100 m and 20 m resolutions.
