MEaSUREs Antarctic Boundaries for IPY 2007-2009 from Satellite Radar, Version 1

This data set is part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, and provides a map of Antarctic ice shelves and the Antarctic coastline. The map is assembled from 2008-2009 ice-front data from ALOS PALSAR and ENVISAT ASAR data acquired during International Polar Year, 2007-2009 (IPY), and the InSAR-based grounding line data (MEaSUREs Antarctic Grounding Line from Differential Satellite Radar Interferometry) augmented with other grounding line sources.

Note: These data are considered provisional pending a review by the MEaSUREs program. Once the data have been reviewed, this statement will be removed from this documentation.

There is a more recent version of these data.

How do I convert a GeoTIFF into a NetCDF file?
We recommend using the Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) to convert GeoTIFF files into a different format. If you want to reproject to lat/lon as well, then we recommend reprojecting before converting to NetCDF (see the FAQ "How do I reproject a GeoTIFF to from polar steroegraphic to... read more
