   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The NASA IceBridge Ku-Band Radar L1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles 
         data set contains altimeter measurements over Greenland, the Arctic, and 
         Antarctica acquired using the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) 
         Ku-Band Radar Altimeter. The data set includes measurements for time, 
         latitude, longitude, elevation, and surface, as well as flight path charts and 
         echograms images. The data files are in binary, MATrix LABoratory (MATLAB), 
         Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), and Keyhole Markup Language (KML) 
         formats. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded 
         campaigns, and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 26 March 
         2010 to the present via FTP.
