IceBridge NSERC L1B Geolocated Meteorologic and Surface Temperature Data, Version 1

This data set is a collection of airborne, in-flight meteorological and in-cabin measurements, as well as thermal emission measurements of near-nadir surface skin temperature, collected by the National Suborbital Education and Research Center (NSERC). Instruments flown over Antarctica include a cabin pressure transducer, a 2-stage and a 3-stage hygrometer, a total air temperature sensor, and an infrared surface temperature pyrometer. The data files contain measurements for 36 meteorological, surface characteristic, and positional variables. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns.

This is the most recent version of these data.
