   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The IceBridge National Suborbital Education & Research Center (NSERC) L1B 
         Geolocated Meteorologic and Surface Temperature (IAMET1B) data set is a 
         collection of airborne in-flight meteorological and in-cabin measurements, and 
         thermal emission measurements of near-nadir surface skin temperature.  
         Instruments flown over Antarctica include cabin pressure transducer, 3-stage 
         hygrometer, 2-stage hygrometer, total air temperature sensor, and infrared 
         surface temperature pyrometer.  The data files contain measurements for 36 
         meteorological, surface characteristic, and positional variables. The data 
         were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, and are stored 
         in Intercontinental Chemical Transport Experiment (ICARTT) comma separated 
         format, and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 12 October 2009 
         to the present via FTP.
