Description:
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.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Error in the measurements arises from three main sources: * the migration technique (See Processing Steps (http://nsidc.org/data/docs/agdc/nsidc0274_conway/index.html#processingstep).) * 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.
