Dear Cryolist members,

We would like to alert you to the availability of a new data set containing Antarctic sea ice thickness and freeboard results from the ICESat mission. The data are from 13 individual ICESat campaigns which span the time period from October 2003 to March 2008. The data can be accessed at: http://neptune.gsfc.nasa.gov/csb/index.php?section=272

The data products contain estimates of both sea ice freeboard and thickness at the full spatial resolution of ICESat (~70 m) as well as gridded and interpolated data at a spatial resolution of 25 km. Full documentation of the data set is provided in the website and in associated publications. Please send comments or questions to nathan.t.kurtz at nasa.gov.
