New data set releases: High Mountain Asia glacier thickness change data sets

Additional High Mountain Asia glacier thickness change data sets are now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). These data sets contain thickness change measurements for approximately 650 Himalayan glaciers between 1975 and 2000, and 1040 Himalayan glaciers between 2000 and 2016. These data were derived from KH-9 HEXAGON and ASTER digital elevation models (DEMs) and are provided at a spatial resolution of 30 m.

Access to the data sets and related documentation are provided on each data set web page at the NSIDC DAAC:
