   Description: 
      Abstract:
         This data set contains contains scanning laser altimetry data points of Alaska 
         Glaciers acquired using the airborne University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) 
         Glacier Lidar system. The data were collected as part of NASA Operation 
         IceBridge funded campaigns.
