Airborne Coherant Radar Sounding Data
Entry ID: atrs

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Developmental airborne coherent radar sounding data collected over a variety of
sounding targets in Antarctica, including a full gridded survey of subglacial
Lake Vostok and its environs. This was an instrument development award, so the
data are not of "production" quality. Receiver sensitivity documents are
provided with the data.

The data resides in 6, DLT 4 tapes (~30 Gb each).
