  • Model output from a series of idealised ice shelf-ocean simulations, demonstrating a new synchronously coupled modelling method as well as the response of ice shelf buttressing to melt under various temperature forcings.

  • The output of a 40-year coupled ice-ocean run of Smith Glacier, the adjoining Dotson and Crosson ice shelves, and the nearby continental shelf, with ocean boundary conditions forced with a climatology downscaled from a regional model of the Amundsen Sea. Funding was provided by the NERC Standard Grant NE/M003590/1 - Is ice loss from West Antarctica driven by ocean forcing or ice and ocean feedbacks?

  • Seismic refraction data were acquired at two sites on Antarctica''s Larsen C Ice Shelf, in November 2017. The acquisition was performed to measure seismic anisotropy, a proxy for the stress condition, in the ice shelf following the calving of Iceberg A68 in July 2017. 2D seismic profiles were acquired at two sites: S1, close to the new calving front of the ice shelf, and S2, advected downstream from the site surveyed in the NERC funded project NE/E013414/1 (SOLIS). Profiles were rotated about a common midpoint to examine the variation in seismic properties with azimuth. Throughout, 24 geophones were deployed at 10 m offset, with data recorded at a Geometrics GEODE system; data are presented here in SEG-2 format. All acquisitions were performed by Dr Jim White (British Geological Survey) and Emma Pearce (University of Leeds, School of Earth and Environment), with support from BAS. The data is part of the NERC RACE project, NE/R012334/1.

  • Velocity and along-flow stress states were modelled for Larsen C ice shelf, before and after the calving of iceberg A68 in July 2017. The archive contains two sets of model outputs: i) flow velocity before and after calving, and the difference between these periods, and ii) along-flow stress before and calving, and the difference between these periods. The models are produced with the BISICLES ice sheet model. Additionally to high-resolution geo-referenced model outputs, a low-resolution image of each is provided for reference. The maps were produced by Dr Stephen Cornford, Swansea University. The data is part of the NERC RACE project, NE/R012334/1.

  • GPS data recorded from three sites close to the 2023 site of Halley VI Research Station. Data from site LL20 spans 2013 to 2017; Data from site ZZ6A spans 2017 to 2023; Data from site ZMET spans 2022 to 2023. The data are presented as RINEX observation files. The data were collected as part of the Lifetime-of-Halley monitoring programme. This work was funded by NERC grant NE/X014991/1 (RIFT-TIP) and supported by NERC Antarctic Logistics and Infrastructure.

  • Ground penetrating radar (GPR) data were acquired at a site on Antarctica''s Larsen C Ice Shelf, in November 2017. The acquisition was performed to measure radar anisotropy, a potential proxy for the stress condition in the upper ice shelf, following the calving of Iceberg A68 in July 2017. Two GPR common midpoint (CMP) gathers were acquired at Site S2, a site previously surveyed during the NERC funded NE/E013414/1 SOLIS project. These gathers were acquired first with GPR antennas extended in the flow-parallel direction (~ east), and then in the flow-orthogonal direction. The GPR system is a Sensors & Software pulseEKKO PRO, with 200 MHZ antennas. All acquisitions were performed by Dr Jim White (British Geological Survey) and Emma Pearce (University of Leeds, School of Earth and Environment), with support from BAS. The data is part of the NERC RACE project, NE/R012334/1.

  • Input and results files for the ice dynamics model Ua simulating potential past and future ice geometry of Cook Glacier, East Antarctica. Results seek to explain potential causes of recent observed acceleration and speculate on future causes of acceleration. This work was funded by NERC grant NE/R000719/1.

  • Velocity maps were derived, for regions of Larsen C ice shelf, from satellite imagery spanning the period November 2017 to April 2019. This period was selected to monitor any change in the velocity field of Larsen C, in the months following the calving of iceberg A68 from the front of the ice shelf. The archive contains two sets of maps. The first are derived from Sentinel-1 satellite data, and span the complete ice shelf for the full 18-month epoch. The second are derived from TerraSAR-X data, and show high-resolution velocity trends between 2017 and 2018, covering the frontal region of Larsen C ice shelf. The maps were produced by Professor Adrian Luckman, Swansea University. The data is part of the NERC RACE project, NE/R012334/1.

  • The dataset comprises ApRES (Autonomous phase-sensitive Radio Echo Sounder) time series from four sites (G1-4) through the grounding zone of the eastern Thwaites ice shelf. The instruments were deployed in early 2020 and recovered in early 2021 as part of the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC) MELT project. The aim was to provide time series of basal melt rates and the vertical strain rate at each site. The ApRES DAT files were converted to netCDF for publication. Each burst in an ApRES file maps straightforwardly to a group in the corresponding netCDF file. This is a lossless, reversible process. The data were acquired under funding from ITGC: NE/S006656/1.
