In the following the products which will be generated during the Glaciers_cci project will be presented and described shortly. More details can be found in the Product Specification Document (PSD)

  • Glacier area
    glacier outlines in a digital vector format along with a number of topographic attributes (e.g. mean, minimum and maximum elevation, mean aspect and slope) for each entity as relevant for a glacier inventory
  • Elevation change
    Elevation differences for entire glaciers from DEM differencing (at grid cells) or time-series at specific points from altimetry (at footprint/cross-over points)
  • Surface velocity
    Surface displacement fields will be calculated for selected glacier parts; the locations will depend on trackable features (optical contrast or radar intensity features)
