Pre-IceBridge LVIS L2 Geolocated Ground Elevation and Return Energy Quartiles

The documentation for this data set is currently under construction and will be available in the near future. If you have any questions regarding this data set, please contact NSIDC User Services Office either by filling out a contact form, by e-mail to nsidc@nsidc.org, or by telephone at +1 303-492-6199.

The Pre-IceBridge LVIS L2 Geolocated Ground Elevation and Return Energy Quartiles (BLVIS2) data set contains ground elevation measurements taken in 2007 over Greenland from the NASA Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor (LVIS). The data are stored in big-endian binary format and are available via FTP.

NSIDC provides an LVIS file C reader that reads a binary data file from the Operation IceBridge LVIS instrument and prints the records to standard output.

The directory structure for this data set is described in the 00README.txt file.

For more on LVIS, see the NASA Land, Vegetation, and Ice Sensor page.

Data are available via FTP.
