   These data sets should be capable of providing gravity field data accurate to 
   a few milligals during the periods of smooth aircraft flight, with 
   post-processing standard for geophysical gravity. The related data collections 
   listed below provide complementary measurements taken on the same flights as 
   these.

Group: Summary

   This data set contains vertical, cross body, and along body acceleration 
   values for geophysical survey flights in Antarctica using the ZLS Dynamic 
   Gravity Meter. The data were collected by scientists working on the 
   International Collaborative Exploration of the Cryosphere through Airborne 
   Profiling (ICECAP) project, which was funded by the National Science 
   Foundation (NSF), the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Collaborative Research 
   Center, and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional 
   support from NASA Operation IceBridge.
