OIB - P-3 Orion - WFF 05/12/19 Science Report

Mission: K – EGIG – Summit
Priority: Baseline
 

OIB - P-3 Orion - WFF 05/08/19 Science Report

Mission: Southwest Coastal B IS-2
Priority: High
 

OIB - P-3 Orion - WFF 05/07/19 Science Report

Mission: Jakobshavn-Eqip-Store
Priority: Baseline
 
This baseline mission was last flown in 2017 (although two of its upper lines were flown in 2018) and surveys two ICESat-2 tracks of varying time latency. This flight not only extends coverage of ICESat legacy tracks and ICESat-2 tracks within the upper Jakobshavn catchment, it also surveys the centerlines of several glaciers to the north.  One of the IS-2 tracks was swapped (see notes below) to minimize the timing between OIB and IS-2 data collection (the attached map has been updated accordingly).
 

OIB - P-3 Orion - WFF 05/06/19 Science Report

Mission: Thomas – Jakobshavn 01
Priority: Baseline
 
This baseline mission was last flown in 2018 and surveys two ICESat-2 tracks of varying time latency. This flight combines historical ATM focused grid (approximately 100 km N-S and 75 km E-W) and flowline surveys (collected as far back as 1997), ICESat legacy tracks, and two ICESat-2 tracks. The latter are new this year, replacing two ICESat tracks. One of the IS-2 tracks was swapped (see notes below) to minimize the timing between OIB and IS-2 data collection.
 

OIB - P-3 Orion - WFF 05/05/19 Science Report

Mission: ICESat-2 Central
Priority: Baseline
 
This baseline mission was last flown in 2017 and surveys nine ICESat-2 tracks of varying time latency. Specifically, the flight captures several different snow and ice surface conditions as well as many IS-2 crossovers.  Two of the IS-2 tracks were replaced (see notes below) to minimize the timing between OIB and IS-2 data collection. We also note the tracks where surface ponding was visible.  The mission also flies over the sites of several shallow ice cores that were collected by the GreenTrACS project.
