Data sets

A-ERT and ground temperature data- 2010- Deception Island/Antarctica Mohammad Farzamian; Gonçalo Vieira; Fernando A. Monteiro Santos; Borhan Yaghoobi Tabar; Christian Hauck; Maria Catarina Paz; Ivo Bernando; Miguel Ramos; Miguel Angel de Pablo

Short summary
A 2-D automated electrical resistivity tomography (A-ERT) system was installed for the first time in Antarctica at Deception Island to (i) monitor subsurface freezing and thawing processes on a daily and seasonal basis and map the spatial and temporal variability of thaw depth and to (ii) study the impact of short-lived extreme meteorological events on active layer dynamics.
