MEaSUREs Data at NSIDC

NSIDC archives and distributes data from MEaSUREs projects related to the cryosphere. These data sets are intended to serve as Earth System Data Records (ESDRs), providing long-term broad-scale information about the Earth.

Note: MEaSUREs data sets are considered provisional until the data have gone through the MEaSUREs data review process.
