Compilation of Antarctic Radar Data, Siple Coast, 2000-2002
Entry ID: NSIDC-0274_1

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.

Location Keywords
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.
