Radar Studies of Internal Stratigraphy and Bed Topography along the US ITASE-II Traverse
Entry ID: NSIDC-0475

Abstract: This data set contains ice penetrating radar data from the US-International Trans-Antarctic Science Expedition (ITASE) Traverse, from Taylor Dome to South Pole recorded by the St. Olaf College deep radar system. Parameters include latitude, longitude, distance along profile (m), ice thickness pick (m), surface elevation (m), and bed echo power (relative units) from the approximately 1800 km ...
