   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The NASA IceBridge GPS/IMU L1B Primary Position and Attitude Solution 
         (IPUTG1B) data set contains elevation, roll, pitch, heading, north-south 
         acceleration, east-west acceleration, and vertical acceleration measurements 
         over Antarctica using the Systron and Donner MMQ-50 Inertial Measurement Unit 
         (IMU) and the Topcon GB-1000 GPS+ receiver. 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. The data are stored in 
         ASCII text format and are available via FTP for periodic, ongoing campaigns 
         from 12 December 2010 to the present.
