Group: Summary

   The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) data from the 2002 and 
   2006 Flight missions.

   Basic Processing has been done to obtain the radar echograms and derived ice 
   thickness data. Algorithms are being developed to reduce the multiples to 
   obtain accurate measurement of ice sheet thickness over some areas. Data are 
   available in Matlab (.mat) and Adobe .pdf formats.
