Data Sets

Some of the PARCA data sets listed below are hosted by NSIDC, and some of the PARCA data sets listed below are available through the investigators' own Web sites. For data sets that are available through the investigators' own Web sites, NSIDC lists and provides links to these data sets as a service to our users. Questions about these data sets should be directed to the individual technical contacts responsible for each data set.
