Arctic Sea Ice Freeboard and Thickness
Entry ID: NSIDC-0393

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set provides measurements of sea ice freeboard and sea ice thickness for the Arctic region. The data were acquired from the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) Geoscience Laser Altimeter System (GLAS) instrument, the Special Sensor Microwave/Imager (SSM/I), and climatologies of snow and drift of ice. The data span six GLAS Release-28 campaigns, laser 3D through 3I, from 21 ... View entire text
