Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today’s flight mapped high priority lines in Marie Byrd Land, south of the Getz Ice Shelf and west to the Hull glacier. Lines repeated those flown in 2014 and by LVIS and the GV in 2011. Sea ice in the Bellingshausen was also sampled n the transits in and out to the land ice survey lines. Both LVIS and DM systems operated normally. There were two large low pressure systems over West Antarctica that were causing cloudy conditions over most target areas. As a result, today's flight focused on a small section of clear sky that was moving from the west into Marie Byrd Land/Getz region. Weather over Devicq and Hull glaciers were clear, and excellent coverage was achieved.
