   Description: 
      Abstract:
         This data set contains free air anomalies measurements taken over Antarctica 
         using the BGM-3 Gravimeter. The data were collected by scientists working on 
         the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate 
         (ICECAP) project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and 
         the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from 
         NASA Operation IceBridge.

      Purpose: scientific research
