Abstract

This dataset constists of an ice velocity time series for Pine Island Glacier, Antarctica, derived from Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellite data acquired from 2014 to 2016. It has been produced by the ESA Antarctic Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project.

The data format is 3-layer GeoTiff: the first two layers represent the horizontal displacement component easting and northing respectively in output map coordinates and converted to meters per day [m/d]. The third layer represents the vertical velocity and is derived from the height difference along the displacement vector taken from a Digital Elevation Model (DEM).

The method employed to produce this dataset was presented in: Nagler, T., Rott, H., Hetzenecker, M., Wuite, J., Potin, P. (2015). The Sentinel-1 Mission: New Opportunities for Ice Sheet Observations. Remote Sensing, 2015, 7, 9371-9389, doi:10.3390/rs70709371.
