Summary
Abstract: This award supports a project to test whether Kamb Ice Stream (formerly Ice Stream C (ISC)), an ice stream that is thought to have stopped ~150 years ago, may be already in the process of restarting. If yes, it will help establish what is the rate of ice stream reactivation and what mechanisms are controlling this rate. If there is no evidence for ongoing ice stream reactivation, the physical ...

Data Set Citation
Dataset Originator/Creator: Slawek Tulaczyk
Dataset Title: 2004-2005 GPS data from Kamb Ice Stream
Temporal Coverage
Start Date: 2004-11-10
Stop Date: 2005-12-26
Data Resolution
Latitude Resolution: variable spacing of measurement points
Longitude Resolution: variable spacing of measurement points
Horizontal Resolution Range: < 1 meter
Vertical Resolution Range: < 1 meter
Temporal Resolution Range: Annual
Quality Campaign-style GPS data have been collected with Trimble R5700 and R7 receivers using occupation times ranging from about 15 to 30 minutes. Data quality varies depending on satellite coverage at the time of acquisition. Target data quality was sub-centimeter in horizontal and vertical per occupation.
