   Description: 
      Abstract:
         This data set contains nadir photon counting data captured over Antarctica 
         using the Sigma Space photon counting lidar. Position and orientation data are 
         included. The data were collected by scientists working on the International 
         Collaborative Exploration of the Cryosphere through Airborne Profiling 
         (ICECAP) project, which was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), 
         the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Collaborative Research Center, and the 
         Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA 
         Operation IceBridge.

      Purpose: scientific research
