Here, we present new ice thickness information from the Dome Fuji region, East Antarctica, based on airborne radar surveys conducted during the 2014/15 and 2016/17 southern summers. The data are merged with older airborne surveys conducted by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Germany (in 2003) and the Japanese National Polar Institute (1990s and 2000s). Compared to previous maps of the region, the new dataset shows a more complex landscape with networks of valleys and mountain plateaus.
We provide two datasets; one in 1km resolution for the whole study region and a 500m resolution for the area in the immediate vicinity of Dome Fuji.
The projection is polar stereographic, centered on 0E, 90S with true scale at 70S.
