Group: Summary

   Notice to Data Users: The documentation for this data set was provided solely 
   by the Principal Investigator(s) and was not further developed, thoroughly 
   reviewed, or edited by NSIDC. Thus, support for this data set may be limited.

   This data set contains surface roughness measurements collected over sea ice 
   in the Barrow, Alaska USA area as part the joint in situ and aircraft 
   AMSRIce03 campaign conducted in March 2003.  The surface roughness data were 
   collected 16 March 2003.  Data set parameters are snow base, surface 
   elevation, and snow depth measured in centimeters using a SmartStik rotating 
   laser and self-reading rod.  The total volume of this data set is 
   approximately 58 kilobytes.  Data are provided in two American Standard Code 
   for Information Interchange (ASCII) text files, and are available via FTP.

   These data were collected as part of a validation study for the Advanced 
   Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E). AMSR-E is a 
   mission instrument launched aboard NASA's Aqua Satellite on 04 May 2002.
