Summary
Abstract: More than 300 km of ground penetrating radar (GPR) data were collected on the glaciers around Roadend Nunatak, Lake Wellman and Lake Wilson. Reflections from the bedrock were observed on most profiles, with ice thicknesses of up to 1100 meters in the deepest part. The detailed reflection patterns observed in the grounding zone will offer important new information about grounding zone characteristics and dynamics.
