Antarctica

The CryoTop project has produced swath dataset elevation from baseline C data (2010 - 2016) over the Antarctica ice sheet and DEM and DH/DT at 1 km.

Datasets will be available to download by the end of 2018

Swath processing allows to explore the potential in mapping the following 4 processes:

grounding lines
subglacial lakes
ice shelf thickness
calving front

These products are key to the understanding and quantification of processing leading to loss of ice mass at the margins of bit ice sheets but their study has been limited in part by the lack of recurrent observations at sufficiently high spatial and temporal resolutions.
