Entry ID

IAKST1B

Summary

The NASA IceBridge KT19 IR Surface Temperature data set contains surface temperature measurements of Arctic sea ice and land ice acquired using the Heitronics KT19.85 Series II Infrared Radiation Pyrometer alongside the NASA Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) instrument onboard the NASA P-3 and NASA DC-8 aircrafts. The data were collected as part of the Operation IceBridge funded survey campaigns.
