New versions available: ICESat-2 Version 5 data sets now available at the NSIDC DAAC

Multiple Level-1B, Level-2A, and Level-3A data sets from the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) mission have been updated to Version 5 at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). These data sets provide: telemetry data; geolocated photon data; backscatter profiles; geolocated surface elevations for land ice, sea ice, land and vegetation; atmospheric layer characteristics; and sea ice freeboard estimates. The temporal coverage of each data set is included below.
