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.
