Group: Summary

   The data that the Support Office for Aerogeophysical Research (SOAR) provides 
   include various aerogeophysical measurements taken in the West Antarctic Ice 
   Shelf (WAIS) from 1994 to 2001.  

   The instruments used in experiments include ice-penetrating radar, laser 
   altimetry and magnetics, and an integrated aerogeophysical platform that 
   includes airborne gravity with carrier-phase GPS to support kinematic 
   differential positioning.

   SOAR is a part of the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) and 
   provides several types of data associated with various campaigns over the 
   years. This material is based on work supported by the National Science 
   Foundation under Grants: OPP-9120464, 9319369, 9319379, and 9911617.
