Description

This dataset contains the location of the grounding line along George VI Ice Shelf (West Antarctic Peninsula), Wilkins Ice Shelf and Bach Ice Shelf (Alexander Island), as determined from a compilation of datasets, including double-differential interferometric synthetic aperture radar (DInSAR) from Sentinel-1 imagery acquired May-October 2020, Sentinel-1 grounding-line information from 2018 (Mohajerani et al., 2021) and the MEaSUREs 1994-1996 grounding line dataset (Rignot et al., 2016). The dataset is provided in ESRI Shapefile (.shp) format.
