Gapless-REMA100: A gapless 100-m Reference Elevation Model of Antarctica with voids filled by multi-source DEMs
Here we generate a gapless 100-m reference elevation model of Antarctica (Gapless-REMA100) with the voids filled by combining multi-source DEMs. All the voids in original REMA mosaic were automatically filled from multi-source DEMs e.g., TanDEM-X PolarDEM and other freely available DEM products covering entire or regional Antarctica.
The experimental results with the Ice, Cloud and Land elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) laser altimetry data validate that the filled 100-m REMA mosaic of voids can reach an elevation accuracy similar to that of the original REMA dataset for the west and east Antarctica ice sheet as well as the entire continent. In the Antarctic Peninsula area, the vertical accuracy of the filled REMA mosaic by the proposed method is superior to that of the officially released version of the Polar Geospatial Center (PGC).
The file 'Gapless-REMA100.tif' is a gapless 100-m reference elevation model of Antarctica (Gapless-REMA100). The Gapless-REMA100 dataset is a newly released product published in our ISPRS P&RS 2022 paper.
