Seismic bathymetry data, Antarctic Peninsula, Larsen C Ice Shelf, 2016


In 2016, a series of ice shelf cavity bathymetry point measurements were
made across Larsen C Ice Shelf, West Antarctica. The sites were selected
to address deficiencies in the coverage provided by existing data sets. A
hammer and plate seismic source was used. Seismic reflection data were
recorded on 24 receivers at 10 m interval and 30 m offset. Sea bed
reflections are observed at all sites. Surface elevation measurements are
provided to allow estimation of ice thickness when an ice base reflection is
not visible.
