Discovery Metadata System

Borehole sensor data, Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica, 2004-2006


Dataset comprises approximately 1MB of ice temperature data acquired during the RABID project on Rutford Ice Stream. Measured on a thermistor cable with 10 sensors located at depths between 15m and 300m below the surface. Collected between November 2004 and February 2006.

The RABID project employed hot-water drilling techniques, down-hole instrumentation, as well as surface geophysical measurements, to form an integrated programme studying ice dynamics, basal conditions, climate and glacial history.
