   Description: 
      Abstract:
         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.
