   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The NASA IceBridge HiCARS 2 Level-0 Raw Return Energy Amplitudes (IR2HI0) data 
         set contains radar sounder measurements taken over Antarctica using the 
         Hi-Capability Radar Sounder (HiCARS)  Version 2 instrument.  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.  Data files  are 
         stored in binary format and ASCII text format and are available for periodic, 
         ongoing campaigns from 2009 to the present via FTP.
