Abstract

The dataset shows the ice thickness over Wilkins Ice Shelf, Antarctic Peninsula derived from TanDEM-X Interferometry. The data has been acquired between June and August 2012. The TanDEM-X heights have been linked to CryoSAT-2 heights (V. Helm) from the respective time stamp. Elevations have been transformed from WGS84 ellipsoidal heights to the EGM2008 geoid. The ice shelf thickness was estimated assuming hydrostatic equilibrium and a mean ice density of 915 kg/m³.
