IceBridge IMU L0 Raw Inertial Measurement Unit Data, Version 1

This data set contains Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) readings, including latitude, longitude, altitude, velocity, pitch, roll, and true heading, taken over Antarctica using the Systron Donner Inertial MMQ-G inertial measurement unit. 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.
