Autonomous phase-sensitive Radio Echo Sounder (ApRES) data measured on the Getz Ice Shelf-East (2019)

We deployed four autonomous phase-sensitive radio echo sounders (ApRES) on the Getz Ice Shelf (GIS) to measure the ice-shelf basal melt rates and horizontal moving speed of the ice shelf. Two sites are located on the eastern side of GIS: GE1 and GE3. The melt rates were calculated from the ice-shelf thinning rates, offset by the strain rate through the ice column. ApRES observation is to measure the ice-shelf basal melt rates and horizontal moving speed of the ice shelf.
