   Accuracy of the measurements varied. Most pole measurements were accurate to 
   within 1 - 8 cm in horizontal, and 2 - 20 cm vertical. A few measurements had 
   lower accuracy (>0.5 meter error) due to interference from field radar 
   measurement or ionospheric disturbance.  In these cases, the vector in the JPG 
   images is indicated in yellow. Topography surveys were generally  accurate 
   (repeatable) to ~15 cm vertical.

Group: Summary

   This data set includes ice motion and topography measurements that were taken 
   by measuring movement and altitude of poles set in the West Antarctic Ice 
   Shelf. The data was acquired by Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements 
   of poles. The position of the poles was measured twice; once in 2000, and 
   again in 2002. Movement of the poles in that time show the ice motion velocity 
   and direction.  GPS pole positions are given in latitude and longitude, and 
   elevations are given in meters above the WGS1984 ellipsoid. The data are 
   presented as tables in ASCII text files. Three maps of the area are included 
   with the data tables.

   The National Science Foundation (NSF) funded this work under grant number 
   OPP-9909469.
