Visualization of the 1993-2007 CReSIS Greenland Data Sets for the Polar Grid High Performance Computer
Greenland Data Visualization Team
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) has been compiling Greenland ice sheet thickness data since 1993. The airborne program utilizes a 150 MHz radar echo sounder to measure the ice thickness. The data is currently available on the CReSIS web site in various formats including PDF, Matlab, and plain text files. These formats are not readily usable in the classroom environment as a visual representation of the ice depth is not available for each expedition.
