Program for Arctic Regional Climate Assessment (PARCA)

The Program for Arctic Regional Climate Assessment (PARCA), in operation since 1993, is a consortium of 25 investigations using in situ measurements and satellite and aircraft remote sensing to study the Greenland Ice Sheet. The National Snow and Ice Data Center's (NSIDC's) Website provides links to the data pages of the different investigators involved. Data available include Modeled Precipitation Over Greenland, Elevation Change of the Southern Greenland Ice Sheet from 1978-88, Ice Sheet Melt Characteristics Derived from Passive Microwave Data, Greenland Climate Network (GC-Net) Automatic Weather Station Data, Ice Velocities Around the 2000-meter Traverse in Greenland, Mass Balance Estimates by Comparing Ice Discharge Across the 2000-m Traverse, Greenland Ice Sheet Mass Balance Using Precision GPS, and Greenland Ice Surface Elevations from NASA ATM Airborne Lidar. Because the data come from several sources, they are in a variety of formats (.ps, .pdf, Excel, .gif, HTML).
