MOA-derived Structural Feature Map of the Ronne Ice Shelf
Entry ID: NSIDC-0497

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set provides a structural feature map of the Ronne Ice Shelf in Antarctica (also known as the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf). The map was developed as part of a project to study fracture propagation in the Ronne Ice Shelf, with special focus on the Evans Ice Stream. Features were digitized from the MODIS Mosaic of Antartica (MOA), a composite of individual Moderate Resolution Imaging ... View entire text
