IceBridge NCAR Navigation, State Parameter, and Microphysics LRT Data, Version 1

The IceBridge NCAR Navigation, State Parameter, and Microphysics LRT Data (IANCR1B) data set contains multiple atmospheric measurements over Antarctica including pressure, temperature, humidity, and winds from NSF/NCAR Research Aviation Facility (RAF) Gulfstream-V aircraft flights. This data set contains the Low-Rate (LRT) one sample per second production data. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded aircraft survey campaigns, are stored in netCDF format, and are available from 04 October 2011 to 03 November 2011.
