CARDENAS, Carlos et al. Georeferencing data obtaines trhough Radio Echo-Sounding at north of the Antarctic Peninsula. Anales Instituto Patagonia (Chile) [online]. 2011, vol.39, n.2, pp. 91-95. ISSN 0718-686X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-686X2011000200007.
This investigation presents data from working with Global Positioning System (GPS) to complement the work of Radio Echo Sounding from January 2009 at the area next to the Chilean Base Station Bernardo O’Higgins and Jakenau Mountain at north of the Antarctic peninsula (63° 19’ S, 57° 51’ W). The main objective was to georeference the information onto crevasses zones identified by Radio Eco Sounding, using two topographic GPS equipment. The measured points correspond to a grid draw on the area that is normally used for Twin Otter aircraft landing thus, surface and subglacier topography.
