Polar Ice Sounding and Geomagnetics
Entry ID: G00790

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Data addresses ice thickness and related geomagnetics generated during remote sensing flights over Antarctica and Greenland. Digital records include date, time and geographic position for correlation with analog ice sounding data. Digital records also include temperature, pressure, water vapor and, for several flights during November and December 1978, ozone sampling. Most flights included scalar ... View entire text
