Processed ice shelf base picks from airborne radar depth sounding across the Pine Island Glacier Ice Shelf (2010-2011)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01356

Summary

Abstract:
In 2011, aerogeophysics data were acquired over Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica on a grid comprising 30 transverse lines across the glacier, each around 20 km long, and with a spacing of roughly 500 m between the lines. The orientation of the lines was selected to be perpendicular to the surface features visible in satellite images in the central part of the ice shelf. Elevation of the ice-surface directly beneath the aircraft was simultaneously measured using a nadir-pointing laser altimeter.

We present here the processed bed elevation picks from airborne radar depth sounding collected using the BAS PASIN radar system.
Data are provided as XYZ ASCII line data.
