IceBridge Sea Ice Freeboard, Snow Depth, and Thickness, Version 1

NOTE: This data set has been replaced by IceBridge L4 Sea Ice Freeboard, Snow Depth, and Thickness (IDCSI4). This data set contains derived geophysical data products including sea ice freeboard, snow depth, and sea ice thickness measurements in Antarctica retrieved from IceBridge Snow Radar, Digital Mapping System (DMS), Continuous Airborne Mapping By Optical Translator (CAMBOT), and Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) data sets. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns.

This is the most recent version of these data.
