[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The NASA IceBridge Ku-Band Radar L1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles data set contains altimeter measurements over Greenland, the Arctic, and Antarctica acquired using the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) Ku-Band Radar Altimeter. The data set includes measurements for time, latitude, longitude, elevation, and surface, as well as flight path charts and echograms images. The data files are in binary, MATrix LABoratory (MATLAB), Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), and Keyhole Markup Language (KML) formats. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 26 March 2010 to the present via FTP.
