This project is funded by NSF PLR grant 0944763
To archive and distribute Antarctic glaciological and cryospheric system data obtained by the U.S. Antarctic Program.
Ted Scambos is the PI; Roger Barry and Rob Bauer are Co-PIs. Jennifer Bohlander, Amy Casey, and Betsy Sheffield also assisted with this project.
The NSF's Division of Polar Programs funds the Antarctic Glaciological Data Center (AGDC) at NSIDC to archive and distribute Antarctic glaciological and cryospheric system data obtained by the U.S. Antarctic Program. AGDC provides two types of data sets: PI data sets that hold data acquired by specific grants, and Compiled Products data, offering collections of important glaciological parameters. Compiled data archived at AGDC include ice velocity, firn temperature, shallow ice core measurements, geochemical composition of ice cores, snow pit data, and satellite images of ice shelves.
