Abstract

The Lambert Glacier-Amery Ice Shelf system is a major component of the East Antarctic ice sheet. This paper presents two digital elevation models (DEMs) that have been generated for the Lambert-Amery system from validated European Remote-sensing Satellite (ERS-1) radar altimeter waveform data. The first DEM covers the Amery Ice Shelf only, and was produced using kriging on a 1 km grid. The second is a coarses (5 km) DEM of the entire Lambert-Amery system, generated via simple averaging procedures. The DEMs provide unprecedented surface elevation information for the Lambert-Amery system and allow new insight into the glaciology of the region.
