Greenland Survey Areas

These visualizations were produced in support of the 2014 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Session titled "Surprising Findings in Greenland's Melt Dynamics". The visualization shows each of the Greenland survey areas pertaining to each speakers research topic. Each survey area is color-coded according to the corresponding AGU Session and Speaker.
