IceBridge CMG GT-1A Gravimeter L2 Geolocated Free Air Gravity Disturbances, Version 1

This data set contains geolocated free air gravity disturbances derived from measurements taken over Antarctica using the GT-1A gravity meter S-019. The data were collected by scientists working on the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate (ICECAP) project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA Operation IceBridge.
