Brunt, Kelly M.; Neumann, Thomas A.; Larsen, Christopher F.;

<p>We conducted a 750&thinsp;km kinematic GPS survey, referred to as the 88S Traverse, based out of South Pole Station, Antarctica, between December 2017 and January 2018. This ground-based survey was designed to validate spaceborne altimetry and airborne altimetry deve... View more
