Record #153222:

Greenland ice sheet elevation change since 1978 from radar and laser altimetry / R. Thomas, and 6 others.

Title: Greenland ice sheet elevation change since 1978 from radar and laser altimetry / R. Thomas, and 6 others.
Author(s): Thomas, R.
Date: 1999.
In: Polar Geography. (1999.), Vol. 23(3) (1999)
Abstract: Reports satellite radar altimetry for surface elevation change for southern half of Greenland Ice Sheet 1978-88, and aircraft laser altimetry 1993-98. Shows ice sheet in balance, with small zones of change. Radar altimetry found reliable in areas with low surface slopes. Explains differences between results by changes in near-surface snow conditions or variability in snow accumulation rates.
