Group: Summary

   This data set contains ice penetrating radar data from the US-International 
   Trans-Antarctic Science Expedition (ITASE) Traverse, from Taylor Dome to South 
   Pole recorded by the St. Olaf College deep radar system. Parameters include 
   latitude, longitude, distance along profile (m), ice thickness pick (m), 
   surface elevation (m), and bed echo power (relative units) from the 
   approximately 1800 km traverse recorded during the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 
   Antarctic field seasons (austral summer). The traverse has been broken into 
   three segments, which are shown on three maps provided with the data. A sample 
   radar profile covering approximately 120 km of the traverse near Titan Dome is 
   also provided.

   Data are available via FTP as ASCII text files (.txt). Profile location maps 
   and sample profile sections are available as Joint Photographic Experts Group 
   (.jpg) image files.
