Entry ID

BRMCR2

Summary

The NASA Pre-IceBridge MCoRDS Level-2 Ice Thickness (BRMCR2) data set contains depth sounder measurements over Greenland and Antarctica taken from the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder (MCoRDS). The data set includes measurements for elevation, surface, bottom, and thickness. The data are stored in Comma Separated Value (CSV) text format with associated Keyhole Markup Language (KML) files, and are available for periodic campaigns from 23 June 1993 to 23 September 2007 via FTP.
