Version Summary
Version 2 data are in netCDF format beginning with the 2009 Greenland campaign.

Overview

This data set contains radar echograms taken from the Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) ultra wide-band snow radar over land and sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic. In addition, airborne snow measurements were taken during 10 flights over Alaska mountains, ice fields, and glaciers at the end of May 2018 by a compact CReSIS FMCW radar system installed on a Single Otter aircraft. The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns.
