Group: Summary

   This data set is an Antarctic radar-based subglacial lake classification 
   collection, which focuses on the radar reflection properties of each given lake.

   The Subglacial lakes are separated into four categories specified by radar 
   reflection properties. Additional information includes: latitude, longitude, 
   length (in kilometers), hydro-potential (in meters), bed elevation (in meters 
   above WGS84), and ice thickness (in meters).

   Source data used to compile this data set were collected between 1998 and 
   2001. Data are available via FTP as a Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet (XLS), and 
   Tagged Image File Format (TIF).
