GPS surveying to obtain ice flow velocities for the southern McMurdo Ice Shelf, Antarctica, 2002-2005.
Entry ID: K114_2002_2003_NZ_1

Abstract: In the 2002/03 field season (event K114), 34 marker poles were established in a
2.5 km-spaced grid over the southern McMurdo Ice Shelf (SMIS), and these were
positioned using differential GPS. These poles were subsequently resurveyed in
the 2003/04 field season (event K001W), when a further 10 poles were added to
the survey grid. The resultant motion vectors support sparse ... View entire text
