Antarctic Peninsula ice shelf height changes, 1994-2017
Please contact us if there are any discrepancies or inaccuracies found below.
Time series of ice-shelf height changes over the Antarctic Peninsula (1994-2017) from continuous satellite radar-altimeter measurements of surface height [European Space Agency (ESA) ERS-1, ERS-2, Envisat, and CryoSat-2 missions]. The time series have been corrected for ocean tides, atmospheric pressure (inverse barometer effect), regional sea-level trends, and surface scattering variations. Downsampled changes in height due to surface processes derived from the IMAU firn densification model coupled to RACMO2.3p2 (5.5 km Antarctic Peninsula version) are also included. The data are available in HDF5 format.
