Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Launched VFR with the anticipation of getting strong winds off the icecap late in the afternoon well to the south of Nuuk. Flew essentially a triangular pattern over Nuuk, then 25-30 NM offshore as far south as we could go, eastward over the Frederikshabs Glacier onto the icecap and then northward to return to Kangerlussuaq. Winds over the ice were significantly different than forecast, nearly 150 degrees off, and seemed to generate enough particulates in the atmosphere to get a significant wind profile over the icecap especially as we got nearer to the ice-land transition area. Returned to BGSF for a post twilight landing (at 1617 local) as the days continue to get shorter.
