Abstract
Ground-based radio-echo sounding studies of Livingston Island ice cap, Antarctica, were started in 1999 at Johnsons and Hurd glaciers, in Hurd Peninsula, close to the Spanish Antarctic Station Juan Carlos I. Radar profiling continued in 2000 and 2003 along the main ice divides of the ice cap and in the upper parts of Huron and another unnamed glacier, both draining Bowles ice plateau towards Moon Bay. More detailed radar studies on Bowles ice plateau were performed in December 2006 using an ice-penetrating radar VIRL-6, with central frequency of 20 MHz, and a Ramac/GPR radar with 200 MHz antennae, intended for deep penetration to bedrock and shallow penetration to determine the firn layer thickness, respectively.
