OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/20/19 Science Report

Mission: Cook-Ninnis 01
Priority: High
 
This mission is designed to survey the the Cook and Ninnis Glaciers, in conjunction with the Cook- Ninnis 02-04 flights. This particular flight surveys flux gates above the two glaciers, and one coast- parallel grid line, which lies almost entirely above the grounding line. The grid is designed to supplement earlier airborne measurements collected by the ICECAP Project, with our lines falling midway between the ICECAP lines.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/19/19 Science Report

Mission: Victoria Flowlines
Priority: High
 
This mission is designed to survey a series of glacier flowlines in Victoria Land. The glaciers include Lilie, Black, Canham, Rennick, and additional flowlines draining Evans Neve. Most of these areas are unmapped in terms of bedrock geometry, although we do repeat small sections of 2013 and 2017 OIB flights in the area. We also extend the Rennick 01/02 grid on the exit leg of this mission, in order to help fill a gap in bedrock measurements, which corresponds to an area of thinning identified by ICESat.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/18/19 Science Report

Mission: Moscow-Holmes Mopup

Priority: High

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/17/19 Science Report

Mission: Adelie-Clarie Gap 01
Priority: Low
 
This mission is designed to fill gaps in bedrock topography along the Adelie and Clarie Coasts, on a 10 km grid. The gaps are between previous ICECAP surveys in the region.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/15/19 Science Report

Mission: Denman 02
Priority: Medium
 
This mission is designed to survey the centerlines of the Denman and Scott Glaciers from the edge of the Shackleton Ice Shelf to points above their fastest-flowing regions.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/14/19 Science Report

Mission: Denman 01 Mopup
Priority: High
 
This mission is designed to survey the neighboring Denman and Scott Glaciers, specifically the region just upstream of their grounding lines, on a 10 km grid. The grid is designed to supplement earlier airborne measurements collected by the ICECAP project, specifically by interleaving halfway between their flight lines.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/09/19 Science Report

Mission: Racetrack Central
Priority: High
 
This mission is designed to fly three circuits of a “racetrack” pattern along a low-latency ICESat-2 ground track. The two legs of the racetrack are the “D” and “F” (strong TEP beams) of the selected RGT. The three circuits are designed to widen the composite swath of each leg, to improve the changes of coincident OIB and ICESat-2 measurements in the presence of ice drift.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/09/19 Science Report

Mission: Holmes-Frost 01
Priority: Medium
 
This mission is designed to survey the lower portions of the Holmes, De Haven and Frost Glaciers, their ice shelves, and the upper portion of Porpoise Bay beyond, all on a 10 km grid. This grid is designed to supplement earlier airborne measurements collected by the ICECAP Project. We also fly a tie line, designed along an ICESat-2 track. This grid is supplemented by the grid flown in the companion Holmes-Frost 02 mission.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/08/19 Science Report

Mission: Cook Flowlines
Priority: High
 
This mission is designed to survey the two main flow lines which feed the Cook Ice Shelf. The eastern flow line addresses a large over-deepening and extends all the way to the ice divide. The western flow line addresses the trunk that feeds the portion of Cook Ice Shelf which collapsed during the observation record. These lines will connect older ICECAP and BAS WISE/ISODYNE surveys, and capture along- flow features in a region that is particularly sensitive to instability.
 

OIB - Gulfstream V - JSC 11/06/19 Science Report

Mission: Matusevich 01
Priority: High
 
This mission is designed to survey the lower Matusevich Glacier and its ice shelf, plus adjoining Lauritzen Bay and the Slava Ice Shelf, on a 10 km grid. We also fly a flux gate upstream of the area. In addition, we fly an ICESat-2 track as a tie line for the ice shelf grid, and we also refly the 2013 OIB centerline of the Matusevich Glacier and shelf, which can serve as an additional tie line since its lower portion is very straight. The companion Matusevich 02 mission improves the grid density to 5 km.
