AntArchitecture Action Group

The goal of the AntArchitecture Action Group is to develop a continent‐wide, age‐depth model of Antarctica’s ice using the internal layers and surfaces imaged by radar‐sounding. The product underpins a wider goal to determine the stability of the Antarctic Ice Sheets over past glacial cycles.

The initial aim of the group is to bring together key datasets on the internal layering of Antarctic Ice Sheets. Internal architecture describes the 3‐D internal structure of the ice imaged by multiple radar‐sounding surveys undertaken across Antarctica over the last five decades.
