A polarization-sensitive aperture-synthesis experiment has been carried out using radio-echo data from Storglaciiiren, Sweden. Echoes were recorded in each of three antenna configurations over an array of sites on the glacier surface. The echo information was transferred to a mainframe computer and manipulated in order to reveal any major individual targets present. Within a 100 m cube, six major targets were identified, each with its own echoing characteristics. Echo strengths indicate that the targets are probably cavities containing water. It cannot be determined whether they are isolated or parts of a continuous system.
