This data set contains radar echograms taken from the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) ultra Multichannel Coherent Radar Depth Sounder (MCoRDS) over land and sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded aircraft survey campaigns.
NOTE: Reverb will be decommissioned in August 2016 and replaced with Earthdata Search. All links to Reverb will be removed in August 2016.
