Strain fields on the Amery Ice Shelf using GPSEntry ID: ASAC_1106
Abstract: The data sets consist of static and kinematic GPS data collected on the mery Ice Shelf using Leica 399 receivers. Additional GPS data were collected at Beaver Lake, Hamm Peak, Moushino Is., New Year Nunataks, Jetty Peninsula, and Else Platform.
Most data are provided in UNIX Z compressed RINEX (Receiver INdependent EXchange) format, as described in the IGS standards - see ... http://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov/components/data.html
Some data are compressed using the RINEX Hatanaka compression scheme. See http://igscb.jpl.nasa.gov/components/usage.html
The standard RINEX file naming convention is used, i.e., an eight digit file name as bbbbddds.yyt, where bbbb refers to a four digit station name, ddd refers to the day number of the year, s refers to a session number and yyt is the file extension number where yy refers to the year and t defines the file type (o for observation file and n for navigation file. d indicates an observation file compressed using the Hatanaka compression scheme). All files are compressed using the UNIX Z compression scheme, as shown by the extension .Z. For example, base0010.98o.Z, base0010.98n.Z, base0010.98d.Z.
The files are set out in the following directories on the submitted CD:
GPS data collected at the permanent stations at Casey, Davis and Mawson are available from Geoscience Australia - see http://www.ga.gov.au/geodesy/antarc/antgps.jsp
