Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:SIMPL IceSat 2 line with repeat of Sea Ice data collection over Nares Strait. Targeted 13,500 ft AGL over IceSat line but intermittent clouds forced descent to 9500 ft for a significant portion. Conducted pitch and roll manuever over the ice cat near the mid point. Descended to 10,500 ft AGL over Peterman Glacier north and southbound. Operated in Nares Strait for three 30-35 NM tracks over the same flight line at 9500, 8500, and 7500 ft AGL. Performed five ramp passes with near coincident time/location with AVIRIS installed on the Dynamic Aviation C-12.
