National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO): Sea Ice Elevation and Thickness and Ice Sheet Elevation Change Data

Status: Not defined
Publication State: published

Abstract

Theme 5 - Cryosphere and Polar Oceans - of the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) is aimed at resolving uncertainties in future climate and sea-level arising from behaviour of the cryosphere. The data brings together altimetry, interferometry and gravimetry from satellites, coupled with numeric models. Ice thickness data used by Katharine Giles, Seymour Laxon and Andy Ridout in their paper "Circumpolar thinning of Arctic sea ice following the 2007 record ice extent minimum" (Geophysical Research Letters, Vol. 35, L22502, doi:10.1029/2008GL035710, 2008) are part of this dataset along with others to be submitted to the NEODC at a later time.
