LVIS IceBridge Greenland and Antartica Data
NASA's Land, Vegetation and Ice Sensor (LVIS) is a medium altitude, medium foot-print waveform-digitizing lidar. In April of 2009, LVIS imaged areas of Greenland for IceBridge. The LVIS lidar accurately maps surface topography and measures surface vertical and spatial structure across multiple scales. These data form the basis for future repeat surveys of the ice sheet and its margins from aircraft during the data gap between the current orbital ICESat and future lidar missions. This presentation focuses on the data collected by LVIS on its 2009 mission.
