Ground Based 60 MHz Deep Radar at Onset D
Entry ID: blankenship_OPP9814816

Abstract: Deep ground radar sounding was carried out at the onset of Ice Stream D
(Bindschadler Ice Stream), Siple Coast, West Antarctica using the UT/TUD 60 MHz
radar system, configured for pulsed transmission and coherent acquisition and
intergration. Signal to noise was not optimal due to antenna configuration
issues. The radar survey lines at the Ice Stream D were based on a ... View entire text

Description: The Siple Coast ice streams exhibit rapid ice flow under low driving stress.
The physical processes that control ice streaming prescribes the ice stream
system's ability to evolve and contribute to, or respond to ice sheet
evolution. The location where streaming begins, the onset, is the optimal place
to identify these controlling factors.
