Group: Summary

   Ice velocity data from ice stream C, including the body of the ice stream and 
   its area of onset, are available.  The investigator calculated velocities from 
   precise ice displacement measurements made with a geodetic-quality Global 
   Positioning System (GPS). These ice displacement measurements accompanied 
   seismic experiments aimed at understanding controls on the flow of ice streams 
   in west Antarctica. An understanding of ice stream flow is essential to 
   predicting the response of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet to future climate 
   change.

   Data are available in ASCII format via ftp.
