Airborne radio-echo sounding (RES) measurements to investigate widespread enhanced flow in the interior of the East Antarctic icesheet, 2001
Airborne radio-echo sounding (RES) measurements of surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness were made across the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica. The primary objective of this research was to investigate the newly discov...>>
Analysis of snow/ice cores collected from Rothschild, Latady and Smyley Islands, Antarctica, 2006
The project was concerned with understanding how air mass origin and meteorology affect the mass accumulation of snow in areas of the Antarctic Peninsula, and how the atmosphere's properties are preserved in the snow. Ground truth measurem...>>
Antarctic Peninsula Lake Database
A geographic database of lakes on the Antarctic Peninsula compiled over the past five years from a number of information sources: satellite images, aerial photography, old maps and reports. The database fields include: Lake unique id; Name;...>>
Antarctic snow accumulation map and data
The Antarctic snow accumulation map is derived from a compilation of field measurements. Satellite observations from AMSR-E and AVHRR (Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-EOS and Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) instruments are...>>
Automatic Weather Station (AWS) data collected from Rothschild, Latady and Smyley Islands, Antarctica, 2005
The project was concerned with understanding how air mass origin and meteorology affect the mass accumulation of snow in areas of the Antarctic Peninsula, and how the atmosphere's properties are preserved in the snow. Three micro-power Aut...>>
Bedmap data - surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness of the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica, 2001
Analysis of surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness across the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica. ...>>
Direct GPS measurements of the Weddell Sea ice shelves collected during the 2007-2008 field season
During the 2007/08 summer field season 15 GPS receivers, recording position observations every 15 seconds for 24 hours a day, were successfully deployed over the Larsen C and Filchner-Ronne ice shelves. Six of these stations were uplifted a...>>
Geodatabase of terrestrial and marine radiometric dates covering the Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheet (APIS)
More well-constrained dates are urgently required in order to reduce the complexity visible in radiocarbon dates on the continental shelf. The geodatabase provides many conflicting ages, and improving chronological control on ice sheet retr...>>
Geophysical marine data collected during RRS James Clark Ross cruise JR71, Weddell Sea and Marguerite Bay, 2002
This dataset relates to geophysical marine data collected onboard the RRS James Clark Ross (JR71) during 2002, which built on swath bathymetry and TOPAS survey undertaken on the JR59 cruise in 2001. Data was collected using Kongsberg-Simrad...>>
Glacier flow vertical motion measurements, Antarctic Peninsula, 2005/07
At four sites on the Antarctic Peninsula during the 2004-2005 austral summer, ice cores were drilled to reveal the history of snowfall, and how the snow gets denser as it is crushed. Loggers designed to measure the compaction of snow were i...>>
Glacier outlines of the Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheet (APIS) for 1988, 2001 and 2009
Glacial outlines of the APIS (Antarctict Peninsula Ice Sheet) for 1988, 2001, 2009, (now incorporatated into the GLIMS project)...>>
Gravity data from subglacial Lake Ellsworth region, West Antarctica, 2007-2008
Gravity data acquired in the region of subglacial Lake Ellsworth. Instrument Lacoste & Romberg land gravity meter. Drift control primarily contained within the local area. Single, one-way tie to international gravity base station networ...>>
Long-term monitoring of Signy Island lakes chemistry by BAS, 1963-2004
The long term monitoring of water chemistry in Signy Island lakes is unique in polar limnology, in its duration (30+ years), detail, and range of sites. It details seasonal patterns of snow and ice cover, inorganic nutrient status and chlor...>>
Major ions concentrations from monthly snow pit and surface sampling at Halley Station, Antarctica, 2004-2005
Measurements of the concentrations of major ions in snow samples, Halley Station, 2004-2005. Snow was collected using surface sampling and snow pits and analysed using ion chromatography. This work was carried out at the Clean Air Sector La...>>
Sediment cores collected on RRS James Clark Ross cruise (JR104), Bellingshausen Sea, 2004
Sediments cores collected aboard the RRS James Clark Ross (JR104) in the Bellingshausen Sea, 2004. This work was carried out as part of the first systematic investigation of the former ice drainage basin in the southern Bellingshausen Se...>>
Swath bathymetry data collected during RRS James Clark Ross cruise JR104, Bellingshausen Sea, 2004
Swath bathymetry data were collected using a EM120 multibeam echo sounder and the TOPAS sub-bottom profiling system aboard the RRS James Clark Ross (JR104) in the Bellingshausen Sea, 2004. This work was carried out as part of the first s...>>
Temperature data from 20-m borehole, subglacial Lake Ellsworth region, West Antarctica, 2007-2008
Measurement of temperature at the base of a 20-m deep borehole in the region of Subglacial Lake Ellsworth. Resistance of two calibrated thermistors measured at the base of a 20 m deep borehole....>>
Vibro and gravity sediment cores plus associated data collected from the Weddell Sea and Marguerite Bay during February and March 2002
A transect of cores was taken from shelf to deep sea west of the Antarctic Peninsula off Marguerite Bay using a 12 m RVS piston corer, box corer and BGS vibrocorer deployed from RSS James Clark Ross cruise JR71 (12 days sea-time in 2001-200...>>
