Summary of UWBRAD Science Requirements

Measurement of ice sheet physical temperature at 10 m depth to 1 K accuracy at
minimum 10 km spatial resolution. 10 m temperatures approximate the mean annual
temperature and so represent an important climate parameter.

Measurement of depth-averaged physical temperature from 200 m to maximum 4 km ice
sheet thickness to 1 K accuracy at minimum 10 km spatial resolution. Spatial variations
in average temperature can be used as a proxy for improving temperature dependent iceflow models.

Measurement of ice sheet physical temperature profile at 100 m depth intervals to 1 K
accuracy at minimum 10 km spatial resolution. Remote sensing measurements of
temperature-depth profiles can substantially improve ice flow models.

Measurements time coded and geolocated by latitude and longitude.
