Ice Thickness and Surface Elevation, Southeastern Ross Embayment, West Antarctica, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    Ice surface elevation and ice thickness data are available for a portion of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Ice surface elevations and ice thickness data are derived from laser altimetry and radar sounding results. These data are a result of the Corridor Aerogeophysics of the Southeastern Ross Transect Zone (CASERTZ) experiments of the 1990s. The CASERTZ geophysical surveys were aimed at understanding geological controls on ice streams of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, ultimately to help assess the potential for ice sheet collapse.
