Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Antarctic research flight, SLarEC area. A successful flight today on the English Coast and South Peninsula. This mission was a modified plan from existing baseline and high priority flights to best fit into a gap in the clouds which was predicted for the region. The weather turned out to be excellent for the flight region, the forecast models predicted a cloud layer coming in from the south later in the flight but these were high optically thin clouds which didn't impact the data collection. The data repeats existing OIB grid lines in the area and new data were collected along Prospect Glacier on the transit home. The Bellingshausen Sea was cloudy on the transit with very little sea ice data collected. (Nathan Kurtz)
