Airborne Geophysical Data acquired and reduced by The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics, 2000-2001.

Abstract: This dataset consists of airborne geophysical data collected during 2000/01 by
researchers at The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. Meaurements
were made using a laser altimeter, a radar echo sounder, a gravimeter, and a
magnetometer. Positioning was accomplished with kinematic, differential
carrier-phase GPS. The data, reduced by UTIG, includes: surface and bed
elevations, ice thickness, gravity and magnetic field anomalies. Two distinct
surveys in East Antarctica are covered: a grid-based survey of subglacial Lake
Vostok and its environs, and a 1200 km line-based transect extending from the
Transantarctic Mountains (near 160E, 77S) toward Dome A (near 95E, 82S).
