Ice velocity maps of the Greenland ice sheet margin based on Sentinel-1 data

This dataset consists of Ice velocity maps with a high temporal resolution. The velocity maps are derived from Sentinel-1 A and B SAR data using offset-tracking. The maps cover the Greenland Ice Sheet margin (and the interior when data is available) with a grid resolution of 500 m. Each product is a mosaic produced of all 12-day image-pairs and a selection of 6 day image-pairs available within the timeperiod of two consecutive cycles –i.e. 24 days. A new product is produced every 12 days.
