Overview

This data set contains geolocated waveforms of Greenland, Arctic, and Antarctic sea ice measured by the Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) near-infrared (NIR) lidar. The data complement, and are intended to be used with, the IceBridge Narrow Swath ATM L1B Elevation and Return Strength with Waveforms data, which are measured at green wavelength. Both of these narrow-swath data sets are closely related to the wide-swath IceBridge ATM L1B Elevation and Return Strength with Waveforms data set. The data were acquired as part of aircraft survey campaigns funded by Operation IceBridge.

How To

Many NSIDC DAAC data sets can be accessed using the NSIDC DAAC's Data Access Tool. This tool provides the ability to search and filter data with spatial and temporal constraints using a map-based interface.
To convert HDF5 files into binary format you will need to use the h5dump utility, which is part of the HDF5 distribution available from the HDF Group. How you install HDF5 depends on your operating system.
