Group: Summary

   This data set includes subsurface radar profiles that were recorded between 
   core sites during the November-December seasons for 1999-2002. Data were 
   collected using an ice-penetrating radar to survey the ice sheet. Ice 
   thickness data are available for a portion of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. 
   This study is part of the U.S. participation in the International 
   Trans-Antarctic Scientific Expedition (US ITASE). Elevation data are available 
   in Excel and Microsoft Access database format via FTP. Radar data in SEGY 
   format are available by special request on DVD by contacting NSIDC User 
   Services.
