Field measurement data in 2015.
Using ekko Pro ground penetrating radar produced in Canada, and using 50 and 100MHz antennas, the glacier thickness was measured by radar. Before the measurement, firstly, the radar wave propagation velocity in glacier ice is detected by using the tape and antenna of different frequencies, and it is applied to the thickness calculation of radar host to obtain the glacier thickness with the highest accuracy.
Before using ground penetrating radar (GPR), the propagation velocity of radar wave velocity in glacier ice is measured, and the parameters of GPR are modified to ensure the most accurate thickness data of corresponding glacier.
