New InSAR Ice Velocity Data for Antarctica

The MEaSUREs InSAR-Based Ice Velocity of the Amundsen Sea Embayment, Antarctica data set is now 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, consists of high-resolution, digital mosaics of ice motion in the Amundsen Sea Embayment and West Antarctica, including Pine Island, Thwaites, Haynes, Pope, Smith, and Kohler glaciers. The mosaics were assembled from interferometric synthetic-aperture radar (InSAR) data acquired in 1996, 2000, 2002, and 2006-2012 by various satellites.
