Comments:RF09 - last flight before crew rotation. Flight went very well today - we got great coverage, cloud hole was where it was supposed to be... Map attached shows ground elevation along the flight track as measured by LVIS. We found a patch of clouds in the lower end of the grid lines, but other than that were not impacted. Thanks!! (Michelle) OIB-South flew a mixture of Crane and Larsen C lines, the overall flight went very well with only about 10% of the lines lost due to clouds on the southern end. The Larsen C lines were baseline priority and are repeats of previous OIB lines. The east Peninsula/Larsen grid lines were a mixture of baseline and high priority, and some of the grid lines are new and were done to take advantage of the cloud hole in the region. (Nathan Kurtz)
