Basal Melt Rate Beneath Pine Island Ice Shelf (2014)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01106

Summary

Abstract:
The basal melt rate at a single location beneath Pine Island Ice Shelf was observed using an autonomous phase-sensitive radio echo-sounder (ApRES) during 2014. The ApRES was deployed approximately 10 km from the ice shelf front where the ice was 492 m thick and the ice shelf draft was approximately 422 m. The ApRES was deployed as part of the NERC Ice Sheet Stability Program (iStar).

Funding was provided by the NERC Ice Sheet Stability Research Program.
