The active seismics are all part of a survey of the Sorsdal Glacier. They are designed to measure ice thickness, and the thickness of the water column underneath the ice shelf where the ice is floating. This was part of an investigation to determine the location of the grounding line on Sorsdal Glacier.

csv file with measured ice thickness and water column thickness is attached here. Data included: Site, Latitude, Longitude, Ice thickness (m), Ice thickness uncertainty (m), Water column thickness (m), Water column thickness uncertainty (m),Notes
2021-07-12 - an update to the dataset was made to correct a latitude/longitude figure for site S06 in the file "AAS4342_ActiveSeis_2016-2017_Thickness.csv".
