An echogram is a radar image of the ice and the underlying land formations. The equipment is attached to the underside of the wings of a Twin Otter, which will fly close to the surface of the ice on a plotted course for around 4 hours. The resulting image, captured in a computer, shows the formation and movement of ice, which is 4 km. deep and 900,000 years old. I have taken this 20 m. long drawing, put it into Photoshop and cut, pasted and layered the areas under Sky Blu.
