2017-2018 88°S Antarctic GPS Traverse Data

These are Trimble GNSS receiver files (*.T02), for the data collected along the 88º line of latitude. The date range covers 1 January 2018 – 7 January 2018. There are 2 different datasets (A and B) denoting that there were 2 different vehicles, each equipped with a unique GNSS system. When using these data (and for additional data details), please cite:

ATLAS Data for Onboard Flight Science Receiver Algorithms

 

The Simplot Data Files are the data used in the generation of the Range Plot figures in both the paper and associated Supplemental Material: “ICESat-2/ATLAS Onboard Flight Science Receiver Algorithms: Purpose, Process and Performance,” by McGarry, et al., submitted to Earth and Space Science in early 2020. A description of the data contents and format is given in the first PDF document.  The naming conventions for both the files and folders are explained in the second PDF document.
