Overview

This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, consists of surface velocity estimates for selected Greenland Ice Sheet outlet glaciers. Velocity fields were generated by tracking visible features in optical images acquired between 2016–2021 by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) and the European Space Agency (ESA) Copernicus Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B satellites.
