Data Set ID:

Antarctic Aerogeophysics Data, Version 1

The data that the Support Office for Aerogeophysical Research (SOAR) provides include various aerogeophysical measurements taken in the West Antarctic Ice Shelf (WAIS) from 1994 to 2001.

The instruments used in experiments include ice-penetrating radar, laser altimetry and magnetics, and an integrated aerogeophysical platform that includes airborne gravity with carrier-phase GPS to support kinematic differential positioning.

SOAR is a part of the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics (UTIG) and provides several types of data associated with various campaigns over the years. This material is based on work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grants: OPP-9120464, 9319369, 9319379, and 9911617.
