	            This dataset contains ground-based, co-polarized radar data collected using 
	            pulse-modulated 60 MHz and 179 MHz radar at 19 sites around a deep ice coring 
	            site near the Ross and Amundsen flow divide of West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS 
	            Divide).  At each site, the radar data were collected at 12 orientations of 
	            the radar polarization plane for three radar pulse widths: 250 nsec, 500 nsec, 
	            and 1000 nsec. Useful signals were received from depths roughly between 200 m 
	            and 2000 m.  Ice flow velocities and strain configurations were measured at 
	            most of these radar survey sites, and these ice motion data are also provided 
	            at NSIDC (GPS-Measured Ice Velocities and Strain Data from the Ross and 
	            Amundsen Sea Ice Flow Divide, West Antarctica).

Data are available via FTP in 
	            MATLAB (.mat) format.
