COAT and MTCX GPS Observations 1996-2001

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: High-precision Global Positioning System measurements of stainless steel pins
embedded in solid bedrock were collected at two sites in the northern
Transantarctic Mountains (Mt. Coates and Mt. Cocks) over the time period
1996-2001. The data collection was mainly during the austral summers, but some
data were collected at Mt. Coates during the austral winter of 2000. Both raw
and rinex format data files are archived. The 4-character station IDs are COAT
and MTCX. Data were collected and reported at 30 sec intervals.
