This dataset contains grounding line locations (GLL) for key glaciers in Antarctica, produced as part of the ESA Antarctic Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (Antarctic_Ice_Sheet_cci) project. The data have been derived from satellite observations from the ERS-1/2, TerraSAR-X and Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites, acquired between 1994 and 2020.
