Summary
Abstract: A Lambert Glacier - Amery Ice Shelf - Southern Prince Charles Mountains (SPCM) series of airborne (Pilatus Porter fixed wing) RES profiles were conducted over three summer seasons; 1971/72, 1972/73 and 1973/74. The ANARE Mk 2 100 MHz digital ice radar recorded ice thicknesses continuously along extensive flight paths operating out of a summer base camp at Mt. Cresswell (72.75 S, 64.42 E).

Quality Gaps in the data (approximately 30-40% dropout) arose from loss of signal return in areas of extremely deep ice and/or internal reflections from complex structures within the ice. The ANARE Mk 2 100 MHz ice radar produced peak power of 3 kW with a pulse duration of 250 ns and repetition rate of 10 kHz. A linear amplifier stage with manual gain control was incorporated into the system. Fixed wing ... View entire text
