IceBridge KT19 IR Surface Temperature, Version 1
Data set id:
This data set contains surface temperature measurements of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice and land ice acquired by the Heitronics KT19.85 Series II Infrared Radiation Pyrometer. For flights with the NASA DC-8 aircraft, the National Suborbital Research Center (NSRC) operates the instrument and creates the data product. For flights with the NASA P-3 and other aircraft, the instrument is operated by the Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) as part of the ATM instrument suite. The data were collected as part of the Operation IceBridge funded survey campaigns.
