Ice Shelf Surface Elevation data: Amery Ice Shelf 1988-89
Entry ID: Amery_Ht_88-89


Summary
Abstract: A Lambert Glacier - Amery Ice Shelf series of airborne (Squirrel helicopter and Twin Otter fixed wing) RES and surface elevation profiles were conducted over two summer seasons; 1988/89 and 1989/90. Altogether nearly 10,000 km of various flight paths were undertaken, operating out of Mawson (67.60 S, 62.88 E), Davis (68.58 S, 77.97 E), Dovers (70.22 S, 65.87 E) or Beaver Lake (70.80 S, 68.18 E).

Quality Gaps in the data exceeded 50% for 1988/89 (lack of digital barometer), but formed a largely complete set for 1989/90. The ANARE Mk V 100 MHz ice radar produced peak power of 4 kW with a pulse duration of 250 ns and repetition rate of 10 kHz. A logarithmic amplifier stage was incorporated into the system. Fixed wing (Twin Otter) antenna array consisted of a transmit and receive yagi (1 driven ... View entire text
