Antarctic Radar Echograms and Derived Ice Thickness Data from CReSIS
Entry ID: NSIDC-0414

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) data from the 2002 and 2006 Flight missions. Basic Processing has been done to obtain the radar echograms and derived ice thickness data. Algorithms are being developed to reduce the multiples to obtain accurate measurement of ice sheet thickness over some areas. Data are available in Matlab (.mat) and Adobe .pdf formats.
