  • This data set contains aeromagnetic data collected opportunistically during an airborne radar survey of the Brunt Ice Shelf as part of the NERC/BAS Life Time of Halley project. The survey was flown draped with an average height above the ice surface of 420m, and includes 4716 km of new data. The aircraft used was the BAS aerogeophysically equipped twin otter VP-FBL. Data are available include all data streams from raw to fully processed, following the ADMAP 2 naming convention, and are provided in both Geosoft database (.gdb) and ASCII file formats (.xyz). Base station data is also provided.

  • This gridded dataset contains the revised bathymetry model beneath the Brunt Ice Shelf and Stancomb-Wills Glacier Tongue, Antarctica, The revised bathymetric model integrates existing direct bathymetry observations and free air gravity anomaly data to provide the best possible estimate of sub-ice shelf bathymetry. The input direct bathymetric/topographic observations, observation locations, and the input free air compilation are also available as additional separate grid files. All files are provided in NetCDF format in Antarctic Polar Stereographic (EPSG:3031) projection with a horizontal resolution of 2km. The output bathymetry model (Final_adjusted_topography.nc), input topographic observations (Topographic_value_grid.nc) and input topographic observation coverage (Topographic_observation_coverage.nc) have elevation values of metres, positive upwards. The input free air gravity anomaly grid (Brunt_FAA_compilation_grid.nc) has values of mGal. The bathymetric model was produced for the paper of Hodgson et al., (2019) investigating the past and future dynamics of the Brunt Ice Shelf. The publication reference is; Hodgson, D. A., Jordan, T.

  • This data set contains strapdown aerogravity data collected during an airborne radar survey of the Brunt Ice Shelf as part of the NERC/BAS Life Time of Halley project. Unlike traditional stabilised platform gravity surveys strapdown gravity techniques, using an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) rigidly attached to the aircraft as the sensor, allow collection of gravity data during draped or turbulent flight. This was a key factor allowing for data collection during a dedicated radar survey. The survey was flown draped with an average height above the ice surface of 420m, and includes 4716 km of new data. The aircraft used was the BAS aerogeophysicaly equipped twin otter VP-FBL. Data are available in both Geosoft database (.gdb) and ASCII file formats (.xyz).
