Group: Summary

   This data set contains raw laser altimeter, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), 
   Global Positioning System (GPS), and camera data over Greenland, Antarctica, 
   and Alaska taken from the NASA Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS). The 
   data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, including 
   the Arctic Radiation - IceBridge Sea and Ice Experiment (ARISE).
