   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The IceBridge LVIS L2 Geolocated Surface Elevation Product (ILVIS2) data set 
         contains a series of Greenland and Antarctica ground elevation measurements 
         taken from the NASA Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS). The data were 
         collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns.

      Purpose: scientific research
