   Description: 
      Abstract:
         Due to potential errors in the data, this data set is 
         temporarily unavailable. As we investigate these potential errors, we will 
         update you with more details and corrected data. We are sorry for any 
         inconvenience this may cause you.

         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.

      Purpose: scientific research
