Abstract. We used a coherent radar depth sounder operating at 150MHz to collect ice thickness data on outlet glaciers in northwestern Greenland. The radar data were collected in conjunction with laser surface elevation measurements and were tagged with GPS information for accurate geolocation. The radar signals were corrupted by multiple echoes between the aircraft and the ice surface, as well as between the ice surface and the ice-bedrock interface. We applied the homomorphic deconvolution technique to remove multiple echoes successfully and have identified the grounding line of a long ice shelf in northwestern Greenland.
