ITTC Project


Ice Thickness Measurements over the Antarctic Peninsula and Selected Outlet Glaciers

Project Award Date: 09-01-2004



Description

ITTC researhers will conduct airborne radar soundings from a Chilean long-range aircraft and process and distribute the collected data. Researchers will use an improved coherent radar depth sounder and data processing algorithms developed as a part of an ongoing project funded by NASA. Specifically, they propose to collect data over peninsula and outlet glaciers to be identified by NASA and the Centro de Estudios Cientificos (CECS) for studying ice-sheet mass balance and glacier response to climate change. The results of this study will have application to the understanding of long-term climate change.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
