IceBridge KT19 IR Surface Temperature
The NASA IceBridge KT19 IR Surface Temperature data set contains surface temperature measurements of Arctic sea ice and land ice acquired using the Heitronics KT19.85 Series II Infrared Radiation Pyrometer alongside the NASA Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) instrument onboard the NASA P-3 aircraft. The data were collected as part of the Operation IceBridge funded survey campaigns, are stored in ASCII text format, and are available via FTP for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 05 March 2012 to the present.
