Data from the ice mass balance buoy network is available for downloading. The data can be downloaded from either the individual buoy pages or from the CRREL ftp site. All files are in ASCII comma separated variables (csv) format. The file convention is buoyname_type.csv, where type is "temp" for temperature profiles, "pos" for position, "met" for barometric pressure and air temperature, and "mass" for ice mass balance (time series of the surface and bottom position). To access the data go to individual web pages or to the CRREL ftp site listed below:
