[1] The air content of glacial firn determines the effect and attribution of observed changes in ice surface elevation, but is currently measurable only using labor‐intensive ground‐ based techniques. Here a novel method is presented for using radar soundingmeasurements to decompose the total thickness of floating ice shelves into thicknesses of solid ice and firn air (or firn water). The method is applied to a 1997/98 airborne survey of Larsen Ice Shelf, revealing large spatial gradients in… CONTINUE READING
