Abstract
The data contain the time series totals of SAR derived detrended surface velocities from Livingston Island, as well as GeoTiff files generated from intensity tracking of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery. The images include average annual velocity and ice thickness of King George Island, and average annual velocity, ice thickness, and a digital elevation model of Livingston Island.
