Title: Italian RES Investigation in Antarctica: The New Radar System
Title of journal: Terra Antartica Reports

Publisher: Terra Antartica Publication
Issue Date: Jul-2008
Keywords: radio echo sounding (RES)
Abstract: A Radio Echo Sounding (RES) system is an active remote-sensing instrument that uses electromagnetic wave penetration into the ice to obtain information on the depth of the bedrock and on the ice thickness and its inhomogeneities, i.e. internal layering of glaciers and subglacial lake exploration. In 1995 the INGV developed its own airborne radio echo sounding system, which is continuously being upgraded. During the 1995, 1997, 1999, 2001 and 2003 Italian Antarctic Expeditions, the RES system was used to investigate different Antarctic regions. During 2007-2008 campaign, new RES systems will be used. In the following the main characteristics of the systems will be briefly described.
