Group: Summary

   NOTE:  This data set has been replaced by IceBridge L4 Sea Ice Freeboard, Snow 
   Depth, and Thickness (IDCSI4). This data set contains derived geophysical 
   data products including sea ice freeboard, snow depth, and sea ice thickness 
   measurements in Antarctica retrieved from IceBridge Snow Radar, Digital 
   Mapping System (DMS), Continuous Airborne Mapping By Optical Translator 
   (CAMBOT), and Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) data sets. The data were 
   collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns.
