Pre-IceBridge MCoRDS L1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles, Version 1

The Pre-IceBridge MCoRDS L1B Geolocated Radar Echo Strength Profiles (BRMCR1B) data set contains Arctic and Antarctic radio echo-sounding measurements taken from the Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder (MCoRDS) during periodic campaigns from June 1993 to September 2007. The data set includes elevation and surface measurements, as well as flight path charts and echogram images. The data are stored in MATLAB, Portable Network Graphics (PNG), Keyhole Markup Language (KML), and Portable Document Format (PDF) files, and are available via FTP.
