GPS positions from sensors monitoring ice flow during the RABID Project (Leica and Trimble receivers). Five stations on the ice stream, plus one on slow-moving adjacent ice sheet (Fletcher Promontory), and one on a nunatak (unofficial name &Tolly''s Heel&) in the Ellsworth Mountains. Sensors: Leica 1200 GPS receivers Trimble 5200 GPS receivers Trimble 4000 GPS receivers
