Antarctic Subglacial Lake Classification Inventory
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).
The following example shows how to cite the use of this data set in a publication. For more information, see our Use and Copyright Web page.
