Greenland Ice Sheet satellite data intercomparison - ESA Climate Change Initiative "Round-Robin" test

René Forsberg

Dear Colleagues

 

The ESA Climate Change Initiative (www.esa-cci.org) has launched a new project to provide selected Essential Climate Variables of the Greenland Ice Sheet. The ECV’s include Surface Elevation Change (from radar altimetry), Ice Velocity (from SAR), and outlet glacier Calving Front Locations and Grounding Line Locations.

 

As part of the project, a fully open “Round-Robin” algorithm intercomparison test has been launched – to aid in the selection of “best algorithms” for the future routine ECV production. You are cordially to participate in this test.

 

Instructions and data (or links to data) are available at http://roundrobin.esa-icesheets-cci.org for the selected regions of the ice sheet.

 

Deadline for reporting back in end of September 2012. Results will be anonymized, but all participants will be acknowledged for each of the 4 tests (joint paper(s) could also be an option).

 

Yours

Rene Forsberg, National Space Institute, Denmark (icesheets project coordinator), [hidden email]
