Audience_Interest_Guide: Research Community

This report assesses potential research applications of satellite data over the
terrestrial ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica and recommends actions
required to ensure acquisition of relevant data and appropriate processing to a
form suitable for research purposes. Relevant data include high-resolution visible
and SAR imagery, infrared, passive-microwave and scatterometer
measurements, and surface topography information from laser and radar
altimeters.
