Dear Colleague,

The "MEaSUREs MODIS Mosaic of Greenland 2005 (MOG2005) Image Map" data set
is now available from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed
Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). This data set, part of the NASA Making
Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs)
program, consists of two digital image maps for Greenland that show surface
morphology and snow grain size. The image maps are constructed from MODIS
imagery acquired during 2005 and provide nearly cloud-free views of all land
areas and islands larger than a few hundred meters, including the ice caps
on Baffin Island, Devon Island, Axel Heiberg Island, and Ellesmere Island.

Access to the data and documentation is provided on the data set Web page at
the NSIDC DAAC:
