Papers are now being accepted for the symposium on a range of topics relating to radioglaciology, including:

  • Radars and signal processing techniques for sounding and imaging of polar ice sheets
  • Ultra-wideband radar technology and innovative polar research applications
  • Recent observations and results over the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets
  • Refining algorithms for basal condition assessment
  • Remote sensing techniques for smaller ice masses and ice masses in logistically challenging areas outside the poles
