Map of Rutford Ice Stream velocities

Data Acquisition Method

These velocities were determined from Maganavox Geoceiver occupations of stations, which were revisited approximately one year later. The data were not post-processed so the point-position accuracy is +/- 5 m, giving a velocity accuracy of approx +/- 7 m/a (ie around 2%).
