IceBridge HiCARS 2 L2 Geolocated Ice Thickness, Version 1

This data set contains ice thickness measurements taken over Antarctica using the Hi-Capability Radar Sounder (HiCARS) instrument. 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.
