Airborne geophysical data of Institute & Moller ice streams, West Antarctica, 2010-11
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/00874

Summary

Abstract:
Between mid-December 2010 and mid-January 2011, ~25,000km of aerogeophysical data were collected from the Institute and Moller ice streams, West Antarctica. Data coverage extended from the grounding lines to the ice divide, with a high resolution grid centered over the region of most pronounced ice flow acceleration. Data was collected using the BAS aerogeophysical equipped Twin Otter aircraft "Bravo Lima". Primary data types collected were ice-sounding radar, laser ranging, airborne gravity and airborne magnetics; a processed ice thickness dataset is also available. The data were acquired during twenty eight survey flights (sixteen flown from remote field camp C110, ten from Patriot Hills and two "transit" flights).

Funding was provided by the UK NERC AFI grant NE/G013071/1.
