Correction to MEaSURES Greenland Ice Velocity Announcement
The previous announcement contained an incorrect data set title in the
subject and body of the announcement. It should have read:
The MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Velocity: Selected Glacier Site Velocity Maps
from Optical Images, Version 2 data set, available at the NASA National
Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC)
has been updated.
This data set, part of the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in
Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program, consists of mean monthly
velocity maps for selected glacier outlet areas. The maps are generated
by tracking visible features between optical image pairs. The update
expands the temporal coverage of the data from 1985-2016 using data from
Landsat 4 and 5, and expands the spatial coverage to include more outlet
glaciers in Greenland.
