The project's goals are:
- To analyse radio echo sounding data acquired over the Greenland Ice Sheet by the University of Kansas / CReSIS team with the objective of discriminating between frozen and thawed conditions at the bed of the ice sheet.
- To provide maps of the bed state, with the aim of making them available via the National Snow and Ice Data Centre.
- To support ice sheet modelling activities by providing information on the bed state, thus related to the temperature at the bed and the rheological conditions at the bed.
- To make available to educational establishments information on the relevance and significance of the state of the major ice sheets and the Greenland Ice Sheet in particular
