   Description: 
      Abstract:
         The NASA IceBridge Snow Radar Level-1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles 
         (IRSNO1B) data set contains snow thickness and internal layer measurements 
         taken from the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) ultra 
         wide-band snow radar.  The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge 
         funded campaigns.

      Purpose: scientific research
