Ice sheets hold the largest potential for sea level rise in the upcoming decades to centuries and represent the largest source of uncertainty for projections. Ice sheet surface velocity is a fundamental observable aspect of their dynamics that has only recently become available from space. This provides essential information for assessments of past, current and future contributions to sea level, and our understanding of the physics of ice flow. In this issue, Mouginot et al., funded through the NASA’s MEaSUREs program, have developed a new methodology to fuse multisensor data sources, including CSA's RADARSAT-2, ESA's Sentinel-1 and USGS's Landsat-8, to form coherent and comprehensive time series of ice velocity over the entire Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets. These measurements of ice motion over the ice sheets provide a quantum leap improvement of observational constraints for ice sheet numerical models. View this paper.
