I'm looking for GIS data repositories for glaciers or ice sheets that might have both surface and bed elevation data? Or surface elevation data only over time for a single location (hopefully showing the retreat of the glacier over time). 


I'm going to try and create some 3d printed models for an upcoming glacier symposium and want to highlight either changes over time or the hidden morphology beneath a glacier.


I'm doing the usual Google data searches but thought I'd see if anyone here had some ideas of where else to look?

There is GLIMS:




although I am not sure if they have what you need.

Not sure if anything here might help ?




There are some older NOAA datasets too that you might be able to compare DEM Data.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: glacier, ice, elevation, dem, lidar, base, bed
