Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Due to multiple science flights without any ramp passes over the surveyed ramp in Kangerlussuaq, we attempted to get multiple passes on a dedicated short local flight. Weather rapidly deteriorated from 13,000 ft ceilings at brief to 9000 ft at takeoff. We leveled off at our maximum possible VFR altitude of 4500 feet and by the third pass elected to land VFR while it was still an option. Three successful low altitude ramp over flights were completed.
