Equipment Used
Underlay ice gouge information with ice ridge and ice motion data from
time lapse radar of Lou Shipiro, University of Alaska. Side scan mosaic
is goal.
Information to be Derived
Side scan mosaic and detailed bathymetry
Shore normal transects 140/320 deg t 200 m apart off (n and s) radar
site at Narl center line = 0. Lines 1n to 9n and (a to n) and longer line
"ranged" on two large fuel tanks at north end of Narl runway (132/312 deg t).
lines 1s to 5s.
