SHEBA Reconnaissance Imagery, Version 1

This data set consists of optical band reconnaissance imagery of the Surface Heat Balance of the Arctic (SHEBA) site acquired between August 1997 and September 1998. The images cover a variable area on the order of 15 km by 40 km, at a resolution of about 1 m. Some, but not all of the images contain the SHEBA experiment platform (the Canadian icebreaker Des Groseillers). The National Imagery and Mapping Agency approved the release of the imagery at the request of the National Science Foundation (NSF).
