Group: Summary

   The NASA IceBridge Snow Radar Level-1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles 
   (IRSNO1B) data set contains snow thickness and internal layer measurements 
   taken from the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) ultra 
   wide-band snow radar.  The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge 
   funded campaigns.
