IceBridge Geometrics 823A Cesium Magnetometer L1B Time-Tagged Magnetic Field, Version 1

The NASA IceBridge Geometrics 823A Cesium Magnetometer L1B Time-Tagged Magnetic Field (IMGEO1B) data set contains magnetic field strength measurements taken over Antarctica using the Geometrics 823A Cesium 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 via FTP for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 16 November 2009 to the present.
