What is glaciology?
Glaciology is the study of glaciers and other natural occurrences of ice, such as ice sheets and seasonal precipitation. Ice-radar systems have been used to study the surfaces of these ice formations and to determine the depth of transition layers. Geophysicists are particularly interested in using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) as a method to study the ice thickness and the variation of that thickness over time.
Kentech manufactures a pulse generator specifically made to function as a transmitter in GPR systems. The unit has been deployed in the field for many surveys. Download the papers below that utilized a Kentech GPR and browse the Kentech GPR product page for additional information.
