In January 1986, reflection-seismic measurements were made in the central part of Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf, north of Henry and Korff ice rises, by a German oversnow traverse. With the help of a newly developed "ice streamer", two people were able to obtain seismic records nearly every 5km over a distance of 150km within 3d. Processing of digitally recorded seismograms yielded profiles of ice thickness and sea depth. The ice thickness varies from 400 to 500 m and is in good agreement with the thickness of 465 m at a drill hole. The reflection-seismic results are comparable with those obtained from aerogeophysical measurements.
