IceBridge HiCARS 2 L0 Raw Return Energy Amplitudes, Version 1

The NASA IceBridge HiCARS 2 Level-0 Raw Return Energy Amplitudes (IR2HI0) data set contains radar sounder measurements taken over Antarctica using the Hi-Capability Radar Sounder (HiCARS) Version 2 instrument. The data were collected by scientists working on the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate (ICECAP) project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA Operation IceBridge. Data files are stored in binary format and ASCII text format and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 2009 to the present via FTP.
