Data

Our group employs remote sensing data from various platforms (satellites, fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, vessels) to generate Level 3 and Level 4 geophysical products of interest to understand the physical processes governing the evolution of glaciers and ice sheets and to help constrain ocean-ice-sheet coupled numerical models of evolution of glaciers and ice sheets.

In this page, you will find links to our MEaSUREs-1 and MEaSUREs-2 ice motion products for Antarctica, including a continent-wide ice motion map of Antarctica, annual ice-sheet wide time series from 2006 to 2015, finer time series over select glacier sectors (Amundsen Sea Sector, Siple Coast, Totten), along with more standard products for Antarctica: ice shelf boundaries, drainage basins for mass balance assessment, interferometrically-derived and time tagged grounding lines around Antarctica.

We also provide an ice sheet wide ice motion product for Greenland and a delineation of all drainage basins in Greenland and its floating ice shelves.

You will also find bed elevation products for Jakobshavn Glacier and other glaciers surveyed in 2012 for the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, bed elevation products for the Patagonia ice fields of Southern America, and bathymetry products in select parts of West Antarctica (Amundsen Sea Embayment, Getz Ice Shelf).

We also share gravity data acquired for GBMF. Data acquired for Operation IceBridge are available at NSIDC.

Data products collected for the NASA Earth Venture Suborbital Mission “Ocean Melting Greenland” (OMG), E. Rignot Deputy PI, are available on the OMG web site: omg.jpl.nasa.gov.
