October 1, 2015. The U.S. SHARAD team members have redelivered the radargrams that were released on August 31 to correct a processing error. See details in ERRATA.TXT.

August 31, 2015. MRO Release 34 includes a delivery of SHARAD radargrams from the U.S. team members containing data acquired from October 5, 2014, through May 3, 2015, bringing the radargram archive up to date with respect to other MRO data sets.

This release does not include a delivery from the SHARAD team members in Italy.

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.
