MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) 2000 Image Mosaic V001

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

This data set, part of the NASA's Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, provides a complete 15 m resolution image mosaic of the Greenland ice sheet, derived from USGS Landsat 7 ETM+ imagery and Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) RADARSAT-1 imagery from the years 1999 to 2002. Additional bands (some at 30 m resolution) are provided for each tile in the mosaic and are useful for understanding surface properties, such as snow grain size, bedrock outcrops, mapping layering in the snow, and blue ice or lake-filled regions, during the spring and summer months. The panchromatic (band 8) mosaic provides the highest-resolution view of the ice sheet surface at 15 m, resolving topographic features, large crevasses, and other geophysical structures.

See Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) for related data.
