Summary
Abstract: The Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of five oversnow traverses were conducted from 1989-95. The ANARE 100 MHz digital ice radar operated from the second traverse (1990/91) and recorded ice thicknesses approximately every 10-15 m along three routes: the 2014 km main traverse track from LGB00 (68.6543 S, 61.1201 E) near Mawson to LGB72 (69.9209 S, 76.4933 E) near Davis; the 516 km upper western ...

Quality Small gaps in the data arose from loss of signal return in areas of extremely deep ice and/or internal reflections from complex structures within the ice. On a 2 km spatially averaged resolution these gaps have been compensated for by gravity interpolation of ice thicknesses. The ANARE Mk Vb 100 MHz ice radar produced peak power of 3 kW with a pulse duration of 250 ns and repetition rate of 10 ... View entire text
