Comments:RF10 PIG (Pine Island Glacer - Repeat) Great flight today - we ended up sticking with the PIGRepeat plan (an ICEBRidge “Baseline” priority plan) and encountered very few clouds. Lines were a repeat and extension of lines flown using LVIS in 2009 and 2011, along with an ICESat track repeat on the way in and a PIG flow line on the exit. We also flew a line requested by Chilean collaborators from the sea ice to land ice that was partially clear on the transit on. Both LVIS and DMS got great data. Coverage map for LVIS is attached below, with color showing ice sheet elevation. Michelle
