Penetrating the mysteries of Von Postbreen

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is widely used to observe the basal topography of glaciers and ice sheets. The SIOS funded project “Structure of a surge type glacier from multi-offset ground penetrating radar (SumoGPR)" set out to observe the bed topography of Von Postbreen, a polythermal surge-type glacier in Svalbard.

Catalogue trouble

Following an upgrade of the front- and backend services of the catalogue, the catalogue search engine was restructured yesterday and reindexing of datasets initiated. During the evening of November 21 a hardware outage prevented completion of the reindexing process. Due to this, the catalogue is yet not properly populated. This work will continue once hardware issues have been fixed.
