Group: Summary

   The NASA IceBridge ATM Level-1B Elevation and Return Strength (ILATM1B) data 
   set contains spot elevation measurements of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice, and 
   Greenland, Antarctic Peninsula, and West Antarctic region ice surface acquired 
   using the NASA Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) instrumentation. The data 
   were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded aircraft survey 
   campaigns, and are stored in qfit binary format and are available for 
   periodic, ongoing campaigns from 31 March 2009 to the present via FTP.
