Monitoring surface elevation change and ice sheet movement in Antarctica using high-precision GPS techniques
Entry ID: ASAC_887

Abstract: The data sets consist of static and kinematic GPS data collected on the Amery Ice Shelf using Leica 299 receivers. Additional GPS data were collected at Beaver Lake. All data are provided in UNIX Z compressed RINEX (Receiver INdependent EXchange) format, as described in the IGS standards - see

The standard RINEX file naming convention is used, i.e., ... View entire text
