Record #119480:

An airborne millimeter-wave FM-CW radar for thickness profiling of freshwater ice / Norbert E. Yankielun.

Title: An airborne millimeter-wave FM-CW radar for thickness profiling of freshwater ice / Norbert E. Yankielun.
Author(s): Yankielun, Norbert E.
Date: 1992.
In: CRREL Report. (1992.), Vol. 92-20 (1992)
Abstract: Describes development of prototype system, employing real-time data acquisition and digital signal processing techniques and operating at frequencies of 26.5 to 40 GHz. Thickness resolution is better than 3 cm±10%. System was tested on ground and from helicopter at heights of up to 7 m above surface. Ice sheets between 3 and 35 cm thick, with and without snow cover, on ponds and rivers have been profiled. Results show direct correlation between radar and borehole thickness measurements.
