Autonomous phase-sensitive Radio Echo Sounder (ApRES) data measured on the Getz Ice Shelf-West (2018)

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. The four sites are located on the west side of GIS: GW1 near the Siple Island and GW2~GW4 to the southwest from GW1. 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.
