New aerogeophysical data were acquired over coastal targets in East Antarctica during the 2011/2012 season of the international collaborative ICECAP project, as part of NASA’s Operation Ice Bridge. Data types include multi-frequency ice sounding radar, spot and scanning laser altimetry, magnetic, and dual-instrument airborne gravimetry. The Totten Glacier and nearby Moscow University Ice Shelf were prime targets, resulting in 5 km x 5 km and 10 km x 10 km coverage, respectively, when combined with data acquired during the 2010/2011 field season.
