Dated radar stratigraphy of the Pine Island Glacier catchment (West Antarctica) derived from BBAS-PASIN (2004-05) and OIB-MCoRDS2 (2016/2018) surveys

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset contains the position and depth of four spatially-extensive Internal Reflecting Horizons (or IRHs) traced on the British Antarctic Survey's PASIN system and NASA Operation IceBridge's MCoRDS2 system across the Pine Island Glacier catchment. Using the WAIS Divide ice-core chronology and a 1-D steady-state model, we assign ages to our four IRHs: (R1) 2.31-2.92 ka, (R2) 4.72 +/- 0.28 ka, (R3) 6.94 +/- 0.31 ka, and (R4) 16.50 +/- 0.79 ka.

This project was funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council Grant NE/L002558/1
