   Description: 
      Abstract:
         Due to potential errors in the data, the 2012 Antarctica 
         campaign of this data set is temporarily unavailable. However, data for all 
         previous campaigns are still available. As we investigate these potential 
         errors, we will update you with more details and corrected data. We are sorry 
         for any inconvenience this may cause you.

         The IceBridge MCoRDS L1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles (IRMCR1B) 
         data set contains radio echo-sounding measurements over Antarctica taken from 
         the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder (MCoRDS).  The data set includes 
         measurements for echograms, time, latitude, longitude, elevation, and surface, 
         as well as flight path charts and echogram images.  The data were collected as 
         part of the Operation IceBridge field campaigns, and are stored in MATLAB 
         files with associated PDF, TIFF, and PNG files.  The data are available for 
         periodic, ongoing campaigns from 16 October 2009 to the present via FTP.
