GLAS/ICESat L1B Global Elevation Data V033

Metadata Updated: October 9, 2017

Data granules contain approximately 23 minutes (1/4 orbit) and include the surface elevation, surface roughness assuming no slope, surface slope assuming no roughness and geodetic and atmospheric corrections for the range at the full 40/sec resolution. (Suggested Usage: This is a global file that can be used by scientists investigating surface elevation, slope, reflection, and other surface characteristics. This product will be used with GLA05 to create the level 2 surface-specific altimeter products (GLA12-15).)
