February 28, 2018. New SHARAD Radargrams covering the period May 13 through August 14, 2017 have been posted. Also, SHARAD EDRs from ASI have been posted covering MRO releases 43 and 44. The SHARAD EDR data set is now up to date.

February 15, 2018. SHARAD EDRs from ASI have been posted covering previous MRO releases 35-42. The team is recovering data from deliveries that were missed due to a hiatus in ground operations. See ERRATA.TXT for details.

SHARAD (Shallow Radar) is a subsurface radar sounder that looks for water and ice in the first few hundred meters of the subsurface of Mars. SHARAD data sets are produced by the SHARAD Science Team.

Mars Orbital Data Explorer Mars Orbital Data Explorer - Provides search, display, and download  tools for SHARAD data sets.
  IDL scripts to create browse images - The two scripts in this zip file are used by PDS to generate the JPEG images in the browse directory. They may be useful as a model for reading the SHARAD data. (Last revised May 19, 2014.)
