IceBridge Flux Gate Magnetometer L0 Raw Magnetic Field, Version 1

The NASA IceBridge Flux Gate Magnetometer L0 Raw Magnetic Field (IMFGM0) data set contains magnetic field readings taken over Antarctica using the Integrity Instruments 232M3ADLE and the FGM-301/99 Fluxgate Magnetometer. 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. The data are stored in ASCII text format and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 2009 to the present via FTP.
