  "abstract": "<p>This dataset contains the median glacier surface velocity for the Pamir-Karakoram-Himalaya for the years 2013-2015 (Landsat 8 only). The velocities has been obtained by feature-tracking of Landsat images spaced 1 year apart.</p>\n\n<p>The folder contains the following fields at 120 m resolution in GeoTiff format:</p>\n\n<p>- the velocity magnitude &#39;vel&#39; (meters per year)</p>\n\n<p>- the x/y velocity components x_vel/y_vel (meters per year)</p>\n\n<p>- the associated errors err, x_err, y_err (meters per year)</p>\n\n<p>- the standard deviation of all the merged velocities &#39;std&#39; (meters per year)</p>\n\n<p>- the number of image pairs that have been merged in the median</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>I recommend filtering data with error larger than 10 m/yr.</p>\n\n<p>For more information and any use of the data, please refer to Dehecq, A., Gourmelen, N., Trouve, E., 2015.
