IceBridge Riegl Laser Altimeter L2 Geolocated Surface Elevation Triplets, Version 1

This data set contains surface range values for Antarctica and Greenland derived from measurements captured by the Riegl Laser Altimeter. The data were collected by scientists working on the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate (ICECAP) project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA Operation IceBridge.

This is the most recent version of these data.
