Abstract: Dry snow zones, percolation zones, wet snow zones, and blue ice patches for the
Antarctic continent are delineated from the 1997 Radarsat SAR image mosaic. The
data set is given as an ArcInfo polygon coverage in ArcInfo interchangable
format. The coverage is in Polar Stereographic projection with reference to
WGS84 ellipsoid.
