Group: Summary

   This data set consists of bedrock and surface elevation readings taken by 
   ground penetrating radar and Global Positioning System (GPS) on Roosevelt 
   Island, an ice dome within the Ross Ice Shelf. Locations  were validated by 
   GPS readings of poles set in the surface snow.  The data was collected between 
   November and December, 1997.

   Data are available via ftp, and are provided in a text file with an 
   accompanying file that provides GPS locations. Surface and bedrock elevations 
   are given in meters above WGS84.
