Title
Continuous GPS (static) Data from the Ross Ice Shelf, Antarctica
Abstract
In October 2005, three geodetic GPS receivers were deployed on the Ross Ice Shelf near the ice front to observe short-term fluctuations in ice-shelf velocity associated with tidal forcing and other phenomena. Two stations were placed on either side of a large rift that is expected to eventually create the next iceberg to calve from the Ross Ice Shelf (called "Nascent Iceberg"). One station was established at a location near station R13, occupied in 1979 during the RIGGS project (Thomas et al., 1984), to determine if the near-ice-front part of the Ross Ice Shelf has significantly changed its long-term flow since the late 1970s.
