Height changes of the Greenland ice sheet, year since 1992

Ice Sheet

The grids contain elevation time series of the Greenland Ice Sheet from 1992‐2008 derived from merged ERS‐1, ERS‐2 and Envisat satellites radar altimeter data.

The elevation changes observed by satellite radar altimeters are not corrected for signals that are not related to the ice sheet mass balance (such as GIA and firn densification). Relevant corrections must be applied by the user.
The elevation change grid is provided in the file: dH_ERSEnvisat_1992‐2008.txt

The resolution of the grid is 0.5° latitude x 1° longitude
