Airborne radio-echo sounding of the English Coast, western Palmer Land, Antarctic Peninsula (2016/17 season)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01339

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset includes ~3,000 line km of radio-echo sounding data along the English Coast of western Palmer Land in the Antarctic Peninsula. Data was acquired by the British Antarctic Survey Polarimetric-radar Airborne Science Instrument (PASIN2) ice sounding radar system in the austral summer of 2016/2017. Radar lines collected at ~3-5 km line spacing transect a number of outlet glacier flows, close to the grounding line, where continental ice begins to float.

Data were funded by a BAS National Capability grant.
