Group: Summary

   This data set contains the results of a model study of spatial variations of 
   ice temperature and subglacial conditions using available ice-penetrating 
   radar data around a future deep ice coring site near the Ross and Amundsen 
   flow divide of West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The model data are based on radar 
   data collected by the Support Office of Aerogeophysical Research (SOAR) at the 
   University of Texas, and the University of Washington, in 2000. The data 
   include values for attenuation estimates for individual radar profiles.

   Data are available via FTP in MATLAB (.mat) and Portable Document (.pdf) 
   formats.
