The MEaSUREs Annual Greenland Outlet Glacier Terminus Positions from SAR Mosaics, Version 2 data set, accessible through the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC), has been updated. New data for glaciers in the northwest and central west Greenland have been added so the data set now spans the winter seasons 1972-1973 through 2020-2021.
