New Catalogue of Thwaites Glacier Subglacial Lakes and Their Activity Revealed by CryoSat-2 Altimetry

This dataset unveils a newly compiled catalogue of active subglacial lakes beneath the Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica, as detected through the CryoSat-2 satellite radar altimetry. The catalogue meticulously details each lake, outlining its boundaries, area, and elevation changes along with their 95% confidence intervals for precise scientific referencing. For citation purposes, please refer to the following article: B-H Kim, C-K Lee*, K-W Seo, W S Lee, and J-W Park. "New Catalogue of Thwaites Glacier Subglacial Lakes and Their Activity Revealed by CryoSat-2 Altimetry," currently under revision for the Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface. Should you have any inquiries or require further information, Dr. Choon-Ki Lee is available at cklee@kopri.re.kr and would be pleased to assist.
