Ice Radar Data collected 2002 Gillock Island
Entry ID: ICE_RADAR_DATA_GILLOCK


Summary
Abstract: This data contains ASCII lat/long records extracted from the binary data.

The binary data are ice radar soundings at 150 MHz from Aircraft flown at about 100 knots.

This covers the area around Gillock Island to look at the grounding zone between the ice shelf and Gillock Island.

The Radar unit was built by the Science and Technical Support group of the Australian Antarctic Division.

This data are part of the Australian Antarctica and Southern Ocean Profiling Project (AASOPP) for continental mapping of the Australian continent (Geoscience Australia).

Access Constraints The ice radar files are stored in binary format, although a program (ReadRadar) is provided as part of the download to read the binary format and example C code to read the radar records. If you are unable to use this program, contact the technical contact to have the data converted for you.

These data are stored offline. Contact the AADC for access (data will be placed on a cloud service).
