Dataset for WorldView Digital Surface Models for Sít' Kusá 2013-2021 Surge Cycle
Summary & Purpose
These are ~2-m resolution Digital Surface Models (DSMs) generated from WorldView image stereo pairs over Sít' Kusá (Turner Glacier), southeast Alaska, and are in UTM 7N projection (EPSG:32607). All files are labeled by the date of acquisition with format YYYYMMDD. The geotiffs from 2013-2019 were provided directly by the Polar Geospatial Center. The 20180122_UTM_mosaic.tif was generated from the 20180117 and 20180128 DSMs. The 2021 DSM was generated using the NASA AMES Stereo Pipeline. The standard vertical uncertainty for these DSMs is 2 meters.
