Grounding zone location across Antarctica from CryoSat-2 radar altimetry 2010-2017
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01231

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset provides a map of the Antarctic grounding zone. The map is assembled using CryoSat-2 satellite radar altimetry data spanning between 2010-2017. This dataset provides both the limit of tidal flexure (point F) and hydrostatic equilibrium (point H) of the grounding zone.

Funding was provided by the NERC grant NE/N011511/1.
