Abstract

This dataset contains an optical ice velocity time series for the Døcker Smith Glacier in Greenland, derived from intensity-tracking of Sentinel-2 data acquired between 2016-05-08 and 2016-05-18. It is part of the ESA Greenland Ice Sheet CCI project.

The data are provided on a polar stereographic grid (EPSG 3413:Latitude of true scale 70N, Reference Longitude 45E) with 50m grid spacing. The horizontal velocity is provided in true meters per day, towards EASTING (x) and NORTHING (y) direction of the grid.

The product was generated by S[&]T Norway.
