CPOM Near Real Time Ice Velocity monitoring service now live!

To coincide with the launch of Sentinel-1B, NERC’s Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) has released their new ice sheet outlet glacier velocity monitoring service to the public. This service provides users with free access to downloadable maps of near real time ice velocity, produced by tracking moving features in synthetic aperture radar data (acquired by ESA’s Sentinel-1A satellite and soon to include Sentinel-1B), for key outlet glaciers of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets.

This service is accessible via http://www.cpom.ucl.ac.uk/csopr/iv/.

For more information, please visit the service link above or our CCI pages for the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. The BBC has also written an article on this unique service.
