During the Living Planet Symposium 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic, Noel Gourmelen from the University of Edinburgh joined us to discuss a new way of processing CryoSat data that increases their resolution and provides new insight into the topography of ice sheets.

Test Datasets

Swath elevation test datasets can be found here: IcelandSwath2011.tgz
They are files in binary, float format, with 7 columns:
Longitude|Latitude|Elevation|qualityFacto1|QualityFactor2|WaveformSampleNumber|WaveformNumber
For details on data and processing and to reference this dataset, see:
