Data Sets

On Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time), AMSR-E, Aquarius, IceBridge, ICESat/GLAS, MODIS, and NISE data are normally unavailable for ordering due to system maintenance. However, on the first Wednesday of each month, these data will be unavailable for ordering from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (USA Mountain Time).


The following tables list the NASA IceBridge data products currently available from NSIDC. To access the documentation and data, click on the data set title.

Legend for tables below:

available = Data available at NSIDC

in process = Data have been collected, and are expected at NSIDC

not collected = Instrument not operational during campaign

gray = Instrument no longer in use by Operation IceBridge
