We report on a previously undocumented range error in NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) that degrades elevation precision and introduces a small but significant elevation trend over the ICESat mission period. This range error (the Gaussian-Centroid or “G-C” offset) varies on a shot-to-shot basis and exhibits increasing scatter when… CONTINUE READING
