  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Jakobshavn Isbrae Glacier in Greenland between 2002-2010, which has been produced as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. This dataset consists of a time series of Ice velocity maps which have been generated from Image Swath mode images from the ASAR instrument on the ENVISAT satellite, with a 35 day repeat cycle. The data are supplied on a 500m polar stereographic grid. Please note - this product was released on the Greenland Ice Sheets download page in June 2016, but an earlier product (also accidentally labelled v1.1) was available through the CCI Open Data Portal and the CEDA archive until 29th November 2016. Please now use the later v1.1 product.

  • This dataset provides an ice velocity map for the whole Greenland ice-sheet for the winter of 2015-2016, derived from Sentinel-1 SAR data, as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E). The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) directions of the grid; the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. Please note that previous versions of this product provided the horizontal velocities as true East and North velocities.

  • This dataset contains a time series of ice velocities for the Hagen Brae glacier in Greenland derived from Sentinel-1 SAR data acquired between 22/1/2015 and 1/6/2016. It has been produced by the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. Data files are delivered in NetCDF format at 250m grid spacing in North Polar Stereographic projection (EPSG: 3413). The horizontal velocity components are provided in true meters per day, towards the EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) directions of the grid.

  • The data set provides calving front locations of 28 major outlet glaciers of the Greenland Ice Sheet using ERS and ENVISAT and Sentinel-1 SAR data. A selected number of the glaciers have been sampled seasonally, whilst the rest are sampled annually. The Calving Front Location (CFL) of outlet glaciers from ice sheets is a basic parameter for ice dynamic modelling, for computing the mass fluxes at the calving gate, and for mapping glacier area change. From the ice velocity at the calving front and the time sequence of Calving Front Locations the iceberg calving rate can be computed which is of relevance for estimating the export of ice mass to the ocean. The CFL product is a collection of ESRI shapefile in latitude and longitude, WGS84 projection.

  • This dataset provides the Gravitational Mass Balance (GMB) product derived from the GRACE satellite instrument, by TU Dresden. The data consists of two products, a mass change time series for the Greenland Ice Sheet and individual basins, and mass trend grids for 5-year periods. The mass change time series contains the mass change (with respect to a chosen reference month) for all of the Greenland Ice Sheet and each individual drainage basin. For each month (defined by a decimal year) a mass change in Gt and its associated error (also in Gt) is provided. The mass trend grid product is given in units of mm water equivalent per year. Mass balance is an important variable to understand glacial thinning and ablation rates to enable mapping glacier area change. The time series allows the longer term comparison of trends whereas the mass trend grids provide a yearly snapshot which can be further analysed and compared across the data set.

  • This dataset provides Gravimetric Mass Balance Basin data for the Antarctic Ice Sheet. It has been produced in the framework of the Antarctic Ice Sheets Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project, under the lead of TU Dresden. The ice sheet mass balance, i.e. the change in ice mass over time, is determined using the US-German satellite gravimetry mission GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment). The Antarctic Ice Sheet CCI GMB products are based on the monthly GRACE solutions ITSG-Grace2016 by Technische Universität Graz, and comprises a time series of mass change grids covering the entire ice sheet (GMB Gridded product), along side mass change time series for different drainage basins (GMB Basin Product). The dataset described here covers version 1.1 of the Basin product. Mass change time series are provided for a number of drainage basins. They describe the evolution of ice mass relative to a modelled reference value, defined to be the GRACE-derived mass as of 2009-01-01. Respective time series are also derived for the total areas of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, the Antarctic Peninsula and the Antarctic Ice Sheet as a whole.

  • This dataset provides the Gravitational Mass Balance (GMB) product derived from gravimetry data from the GRACE satellite instrument, by DTU Space. The data consists of two products: a mass change time series for the entire Greenland Ice Sheet and different drainage basins for the period April 2002 to June 2016; and mass trend grids for different 5-year periods between 2003 and 2016. This version (1.5) is derived from GRACE monthly solutions from the CSR RL06 product. The mass change time series contains the mass change (with respect to a chosen reference month) for all of the Greenland Ice Sheet and each individual drainage basin. For each month (defined by a decimal year) a mass change in Gt and its associated error (also in Gt) is provided. The mass trend grid product is given in units of mm water equivalent per year. Mass balance is an important variable to understand glacial thinning and ablation rates to enable mapping glacier area change. The time series allows the longer term comparison of trends whereas the mass trend grids provide a yearly snapshot which can be further analysed and compared across the data set.

  • This dataset contains ice velocities for the Greenland Northern Drainage Basin for winter 1991-1992, which have been produced as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The data has been derived from intensity-tracking of ERS-1 Ice phase (3 days repeat) data aquired between 29th December 1991 and 22nd March 1992. The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG3413: Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E). The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING(x) and NORTHING(y) direction of the grid, and the vertical displacement (z), derived from a digital elevation model, is also provided. (Please note that in earlier versions of this product the horizontal velocities were provided as true East and North velocities). Both a single NetCDF file (including all measurements and annotation), and separate geotiff files with the velocity components are provided. The product was generated by DTU Space - Microwaves and Remote Sensing. Please note - this product was released on the Greenland Ice Sheets download page in June 2016, but an earlier product (also accidentally labelled v1.1) was available through the CCI Open Data Portal and the CEDA archive until 29th November 2016.
