Update to MEaSUREs Greenland Image Mosaics from Sentinel-1A and 1B
The MEaSUREs Greenland Image Mosaics from Sentinel-1A and 1B, Version 2
data set, available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center
Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC) has been updated with
mosaics through July 30 2017. Track 83, from Sentinel-1, was added to
the data beginning with the May 2017 mosaic. This new track improves
coverage in the southern part of the ice sheet.
This data set, part of the Making Earth System Data Records for Use in
Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program, provides 6 and 12-day 50 m
resolution image mosaics of the Greenland coastline and ice sheet
periphery beginning in January 2015 . The mosaics are derived from
C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (C-SAR) acquired by the Sentinel-1A and
--1B imaging satellites.
