Welcome to the RISCO RapidIce Viewer! We've collected imagery from multiple sources ("sensors") and created an interactive application to view, download, and animate satellite imagery for pre-selected areas ("subsets") in Antarctica and Greenland. The subsets were determined by RISCO with the input of the research community to highlight glaciers, ice shelves, operations areas, or other areas of interest.
To start using this application, select a region from the top menu bar or the images below (Antarctica or Greenland). Then, select a subset and the "Image View" tab will appear, displaying a grid of images sorted by date. Use the filters to the left to refine the images (by sensor, by date, by month, by cloud cover). Click an image to select it for viewing in an animation. When two or more images are selected, click the "Animation View" tab to play the images in movie form.
Thanks for visiting the RISCO RapidIce Viewer, for feedback or to request a feature or imagery, please email the RISCO Principal Investigator, Ian Howat.
