Abstract: These radargrams were collected as part of the ICECAP (International Collaborative Exploration of the Cryosphere through Airborne Profiling) collaboration in 2015/16 (ICP7) and 2016/17 (ICP8). These data were in part funded by the US National Science Foundation (grant PLR-1543452 to UTIG), Antarctic Gateway, ACE-CRC the G. Unger Vetlesen Foundation, and supported by the Australian Antarctic ... View entire text

Purpose: We proposed to integrate aerogeophysical data collected over three critical sections of the East Antarctic grounding zone (Totten Glacier, Denman Glacier, and Cook Ice Shelf). We are motivated by their differences in recent grounding zone altimetry records and their offshore record of Cenozoic retreat. We will assess three hypotheses to isolate the processes that drive the differences in observed ... View entire text

Quality On ICP7 flights F03, F04, F05 and F09, the left hand radar antenna was not operational. On ICP7 flights F06, F07, F23 and F24, the radar antennas were not installed. In ICP7, there was a power mismatch between the left and right receivers. On ICP8 flights F01 to F06, the antenna beam pattern had a nadir-directed null due to a reversed balun.
