The data set provides calving front locations of 28 major outlet glaciers of the Greenland Ice Sheet, produced as part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project.
The Calving Front Location (CFL) of outlet glaciers from ice sheets is a basic parameter for ice dynamic modelling, for computing the mass fluxes at the calving gate, and for mapping glacier area change.
The calving front location has been derived by manual delineation using SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data from the ERS-1/2, Envisat and Sentinel-1 satellites and satellite imagery from LANDSAT 5,7,8. The digitized calving fronts are stored in ESRI vector shape-file format and include metadata information on the sensor and processing steps in the corresponding attribute table.
