Introduction Stacking Refraction Objectives of RES Conclusions R. Pattern Historic Objectives Determine the depth to (and geometry of) the basal reflector Describe the internal structure of the ice sheets using the internal reflecting horizons (IRHs) Modern Objectives Use return powers from basal reflectors to determine dielectric properties of the ice-bed interface Analyze the spectral quality of reflectors to uniquely identify layers through space

Introduction Stacking Refraction Motivation Conclusions R. Pattern The brightest reflectors are sometimes traceable through the lossy region …but at other times, are completely lost in the noise…

Introduction Stacking Refraction Motivation Conclusions R. Pattern What is the source of the data loss? - Affects deeper reflectors more than shallow ones - Appears to be related to reflector slope - More prevalent in the High Frequency Airborne Data

Stacking Refraction Conclusions Introduction R. Pattern Conclusions Areas of intense deformation (and therefore glaciological interest) are prone to internal data loss Amplitude loss due to reflector geometry should be corrected for if dipping beds are used in amplitude analysis. Loss is ultimately a function of radar design and data collection methods. Choosing appropriate radars (frequency), platform, and stacking distances can minimize data loss.
