This image combines two Sentinel-1A radar scans from 3 and 15 January 2015 to show ice stream velocities on outlet glaciers of Greenland’s west coast. Sentinel-1 offers excellent capabilities for observing the velocities of Greenland’s outlet glaciers with unprecedented temporal resolution at complete spatial coverage, extending and enhancing the time series of ice-velocity maps available from previous satellite sensors.
