[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The IceBridge MCoRDS L2 Ice Thickness (IRMCR2) data set contains depth sounder measurements over Greenland and Antarctica taken from the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder (MCoRDS). The data set includes measurements for elevation, surface, bottom, and thickness. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, and are stored in Comma Separated Value (CSV) text format with associated KML files, and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 16 October 2009 to the present via FTP.
