Ice Thickness from downstream of the EastGRIP ice core site, North East Greenland Ice Stream, recorded with the airborne AWI UWB radar system


This project aims to acquire airborne data with AWI's UWB (ultrawideband) ice-penetrating radar to extend the knowledge of detailed subglacial topography downstream of the EastGRIP ice core site, following on from a previous UWB radar survey in 2018. The ice thickness data also opportunistically includes profiles that were flown in different survey modes, both upstream and surrounding EastGRIP. The majority of profiles are oriented parallel or perpendicular to ice flow direction.
