Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Despite having to land at Puerto Montt due to heavy winds in Punta Arenas, today's flight was another good one for data! We got 6 baseline priority lines for ICEbrdige over the Pine Island glacier, which were also surveyed in 2011. We saw some clouds at the east end of the lines, but did not lose more than 15% of the data here. We were also able to survey some large stretches of sea ice on our transits in and out. Both LVIS and DMS collected data today, as usual. On our transit to Puerto Monte we also collected some data over the northern Patagonia ice field, although it was opportunity only and not along pre-designed flight lines.
