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.

Purpose:

Scientific Research
