ESA Antarctic Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative Project
The European Space Agency (ESA) Antarctic Ice Sheet Climate Change Initiative (Antarctic_Ice_Sheet_cci) project is part of ESA's Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme to produce long term datasets of Essential Climate Variables (ECV's) derived from global satellite data.
The Antarctic Ice Sheet CCI aims to produce long term and reliable climate satellite data records required by the scientific user community. These datasets will improve understanding of present day change on the Antarctic Ice Sheet and provide data for models at a higher spatial and temporal resolution than is currently available, thereby improving estimates of future change. It is focusing on providing datasets of surface elevation changes, ice velocities, gravimetric mass balance and grounding line locations.
