The Slope Imaging Multi-polarization Photon-counting Lidar or SIMPL, flew on campaigns in 2011 and 2015.
The Multiple Altimeter Beam Experimental Lidar, or MABEL, is a test-bed instrument for ICESat-2. MABEL has flown on several different aircraft, over terrain including Greenland’s ice sheets, the Arctic’s sea ice, the Chesapeake Bay and more. For additional information, see the MABEL page.
MATLAS data simulates the expected performance of ICESat-2’s ATLAS instrument, and is produced by adjusting MABEL data to be more similar to that expected from ATLAS.
