Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today’s flight included both sea ice and land ice data with lines over the Weddell Sea, and Recovery and Slessor glaciers. The sea ice line took advantage of a slim band of clear sky and data was collected in clear sky conditions for almost the entire line. There was a small patch of clouds near the Filchner front that had negligible impact on the line. We overflew the A63 iceberg and LVIS was able to get measurements, but unfortunately there were some thin clouds over it so we were unable to get a clear picture using DMS. The Recovery and Slessor glaciers had clear conditions along the high priority OIB lines in that area. Coverage map attached below. Another good flight.
