Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Despite conflicting model predictions in the region, the target area on the north and south sides of the Pine Island Glacier was relatively clear. The cloud cover was very dynamic with thin stratus clouds in places, but conditions improved as the flight progressed. Overall, we achieved greater than 80% coverage over our planned lines. We were also able to add an additional half grid line in the PIG area before returning home. The lines were a mix of “baseline” and “high” priority in the PIG region, along with a “low” ICESat priority line crossing the glacier, and two “high” priority lines in the Venables ice shelf region on the way in/home. Sea ice data in the Bellingshausen was also collected on the transit in/out.
