Radar sounding of englacial water on Storglaciaren, Sweden
Entry ID: Storglaciaren_Radar_Data

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: These data were acquired by a ground-based, ice-penetrating radar study of
Storglaciaren in July of 2001 and 2002. Closely spaced grids were made in 4
locations using GPR at frequencies of 50 and 100 MHz. GPS measurements of the
grid locations were acquired but individual radar traces are not geolocated.

The purpose of this project is to understand how water is ... View entire text
