[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The Barnes Ice Cap data set contains survey measurements of a network of 43 stakes along a 10 km flow line on the northeast flank of the south dome of the Barnes Ice Cap. The measurements are of mass balance, surface velocity, and surface elevation. They were taken over a period of time from 1970 to 1984. The data set came from a hard copy computer printout containing raw data as well as ... View entire text
