   Description: 
      Abstract:
         This data set contains surface elevation measurements from NASA's Land, 
         Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS) over areas including Greenland and 
         Antarctica. The data were collected as part of NASA Operation IceBridge funded 
         campaigns.

      Purpose: scientific research
