Thickness of Xiaodongkemadi glacier (2021)

Thickness of Xiaodongkemadi glacier (2021)

1) The data included the thickness, coordinates and elevation of Xiaodongkemadi glacier and was measured from July 26 to 28, 2021; 2) The data was measured by the ground penetrating radar with working frequency of 100MHz developed by China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research. The thickness of the glacier was obtained through the processing and analysis of the radar echo image. The dielectric constant of the ice was 3.2, and the coordinates and elevation of the measuring points were measured by the RTK system; 3) The data can be used to study the changes of glacier thickness, mass balance , runoff and so on.

File naming and required software

The glacier thickness data is stored in Excel format, and the file name is "2021207. xlsx", where 2021 represents the year and 207 represents the Julian date.
