Radar Profiles and GPS Surveys, Black Rapids Glacier, Alaska



This data set contains radio echo-sounding profiles. These profiles were collected across the upper section of the Black Rapids Glacier, Alaska and were used to define the spatial pattern of ice thickness for this section. Surface topography was determined primarily from kinematic GPS surveys supplemented by the pressure record from the radar profiles. The data were collected from May 15, 1993 through July 15, 1993.

The data files are plain ASCII text files exported from Matlab, packaged in a single ZIP file for delivery.
