New version available: IceBridge KT19 IR Surface Temperature

The IceBridge KT19 IR Surface Temperature, Version 2 data set is now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). This data set contains surface temperature measurements of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice and land ice acquired by the Heitronics KT19.85 Series II Infrared Radiation Pyrometer operated by the Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) as part of the ATM instrument suite. Version 2 data are available between 5 March 2012 and 17 May 2019, and provide an improvement of the geolocation of the KT-19 footprints by replacing the coarse real-time GPS positions with post-processed differential GPS positions.
