Greenland Ice Sheet

PROMICE ice thickness data are available for everyone and at no charge. If interested in using the data, please make a request by filling in the form. Also, please include a few sentences stating how you intend to use the data.


Airborne surveys have been carried out in August 2007 and 2011. Surface elevation was measured by LIDAR and the bedrock was imaged by ice sounder radar roughly following the 1500 m (above sea level) elevation contour line around the entire perimeter of the ice sheet. A map showing the flight path can be seen here . For 2011 only surface elevation data is available. The 2011 bedrock data will become available shortly.
