Meteoric marine and total ice thickness maps of Filchner-Ronne-Schelfeis, Antarctica

By H. Sandhäger, D.G. Vaughan and A. Lambrecht


Mapping the geometry of the ice sheet is fundamental to many advanced investigations, e.g., on ice dynamics, mass balance, ice – ocean interaction, ice – atmosphere interaction, and ice body sensitivity to climate change. Regarding the Filchner-Ronne-Schelfeis (FRIS; Fig.1), several research institutes from different countries carried out extensive ice thickness measurements during various field campaigns. The individual data sets were used to compile diverse ice thickness maps and digital ice thickness models. However, most of these results include only sub-areas of FRI
