   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The NASA IceBridge Sea Ice Freeboard, Snow Depth, and Thickness (IDCSI2) data 
         set contains derived geophysical data products including sea ice freeboard, 
         snow depth, and sea ice thickness measurements in Greenland and 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, are stored in ASCII text files, and are available via FTP 
         for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 31 March 2009 to the present.
