Abstract

Grounding line locations (GLL) data for the Ferringo, Pine Island, Thwaites, Smith, Kohler and Pope Glaciers in Antarctica, produced by the ESA Antarctic Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project. The grounding lines have been derived from satellite observations from the ERS-1/2 and Copernicus Sentinel-1 instruments, acquired in the period from 1995-2017.

An extended dataset of Grounding line locations for these Glaciers is available on the ENVEO CryoPortal (http://cryoportal.enveo.at/data/)
