	            This data set includes ice flow velocities and strain configurations, from GPS 
	            measurements on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Divide. Ninety markers 
	            installed in the firn were measured during two consecutive field seasons 
	            running from 2005-2006 and 2006-2007. The markers were located in 150 by 60 km 
	            area, with smaller clusters of five markers located within about 10 km of each 
	            other. Consecutive GPS measurements were used to derive velocity for each 
	            marker. Strain configurations were estimated by differentiating a linear fit 
	            of the data at each marker cluster. 

Data are available via FTP as ASCII text 
	            (.txt ) files in comma separated value format.
