  • Released Thursday, March 4, 1999

One raw data swath over Greenland. Match-moved to animations #583 and #584.

Animation showing one of the flight paths over Greenland, colored using ice thickness change data from the Airborne Topographic Mapper

Video slate image reads, "Greenland Ice Changes (GIC 3)Shows the single flight path taken from the laser altimeter equipped aircraft in scene GIC 1.  This scene picks up where scene GIC 1 leaves off (camera angles, lighting, etc. should be identical).  Camera then moves eastward while keeping a low angle".
