Those of you interested in NASA Operation IceBridge data may benefit from taking a moment to sit back and watch this video recording of a webinar overviewing the IceBridge mission and how to use the data portal. Steve Tanner, manager of the IceBridge data archive at NSIDC, guides us through a brief introduction to the IceBridge airborne mission and takes us, step by step, through the process of searching for and downloading IceBridge data. The video is from a live webinar hosted by NASA EOSDIS.

NASA Operation IceBridge data is of particular interest to researchers looking for remote sensing measurements over the polar regions from 2009 to the present. This airborne mission is designed to work in conjunction with satellite missions such as ICESat-1, CryoSat, and the upcoming ICESat-2.
