Compilation of Antarctic Radar Data, Siple Coast, 2000-2002
Entry ID: NSIDC-0274

Abstract: These data consist of ground-based, ice-penetrating radar profiles across satellite-detected lineations and terrains that were taken in the lower reaches of Ross Ice Stream C, also known as the Kamb Ice Stream (KIS); on Roosevelt Island; on the Siple Dome; and on the Shabtaie Ice Ridge. Researchers collected low frequency (2 MHz - 7 MHz) data during two separate deployments, 11 November through 7 ... View entire text

Quality Error in the measurements arises from three main sources: * the migration technique (See Processing Steps ( * uncertainty picking the location of the bed reflection * uncertainty in the radio wave velocity within the glacier. For these measurements the investigators estimate the uncertainty in ice thickness to be approximately 5 m.
