IceBridge Photon Counting Lidar L1B Unclassified Geolocated Photon Elevations, Version 1

This data set contains geolocated photon elevations captured over Antarctica using the Sigma Space photon counting lidar. The data were collected by scientists working on the International Collaborative Exploration of the Cryosphere through Airborne Profiling (ICECAP) project, which was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Collaborative Research Center, and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA Operation IceBridge.

This is the most recent version of these data.
