Group: Summary

   This data set contains past flow lines of Thwaites Glacier. The flow lines 
   were identified using layer patterns tracked between parallel radar layers, 
   from a radar profile of the Thwaites Glacier catchment. The radar data was run 
   and processed by the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. The flow 
   lines were identified from distinct layer patterns tracked between parallel 
   radar layers. 

   Data are available via FTP in ASCII text (.txt) format.
