Group: Summary

   The IceBridge MCoRDS L2 Ice Thickness (IRMCR2) data set contains depth sounder 
   measurements over Greenland and Antarctica taken from the Multichannel 
   Coherent Radar Depth Sounder (MCoRDS). The data set includes measurements for 
   elevation, surface, bottom, and thickness. The data were collected as part of 
   Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, and are stored in Comma Separated Value 
   (CSV) text format with associated KML files, and are available for periodic, 
   ongoing campaigns from 16 October 2009 to the present via FTP.
