Operation IceBridge - Arctic Spring 2014
« on: March 11, 2014, 07:51:04 PM »
Following last year's operation in the Arctic, NASA's IceBridge team are currently getting ready for the 2014 Arctic campaign:

http://blogs.nasa.gov/icebridge/2014/03/11/icebridge-readies/

Quote
The engineering check flight took place on the morning of Mar. 6. On this flight, P-3 pilots and crew put the aircraft through its paces to make sure things are in proper working order. Later in the day, the P-3 took off again for the first project check flight, and flew along beaches on the Atlantic coast to test the aircraft’s GPS gear and the Airborne Topographic Mapper instrument.

The next afternoon the IceBridge team took off again for the second project check flight to test the various radar instruments aboard the P-3. To carry this out the team flew south from Wallops and turned out to sea around Virginia Beach, heading for open water. The relatively flat surface of the Atlantic Ocean acts almost as a mirror for the radars, providing a good test environment. Also, by flying far off the coast, the team can test radars without the risk of interfering with electronics on the ground.

After completing these check flights, the team set out to pack their bags and rest before the flight to Greenland. Once leaving Wallops, the P-3 and the IceBridge team will spend the next 11 weeks in the Arctic, collecting valuable sea and land ice data before returning to the United States on May 23.

Thank the NASA IceBridge team Andreas, not me. I merely pressed ^C/^V!

The best I can suggest is to try work the glacier out from yesterday's flight path. As far as I know NASA haven't revealed the answer to your question.

Today's flight plan. "The [Seymour] Laxon Line"

According to the NASA IceBridge Facebook page:

We're going to Fairbanks today via the Sea Ice - Laxon Line route. The team will remain in Fairbanks for 1 week to reach our northern most sea ice science targets.

The IceBridge P-3 is already airborne. Here's the plan for today:

Quote
IceBridge will return to Thule collecting data along the South Basin route. Takeoff was at 01:00 am Fairbanks time. We will land in Thule at 3 pm in the afternoon. A good part of the flight will be in darkness at high altitude often with beautiful views of the Aurora Borealis.

Here's a report by Michael Studinger, Mission Scientist for Operation Icebridge, on the European Space Agency's "Campaigns at Work" blog. Amongst other things he describes IceBridge's contribution to the ESA's CryoVex campaign:

http://blogs.esa.int/campaignearth/2014/03/20/cryovex-nasas-icebridge-supports-esas-arctic-campaign/


Here's an image from Michael's post, showing sea ice concentration in the Beaufort Sea:



Quote
Today's flight [March 18th] is a new mission plan. It is designed to sample sea ice in the eastern Beaufort Sea in an area which lacked IceBridge coverage prior to 2013, which is also of priority interest to the Canadian Space Agency. We also overfly the CryoVEx/ONR Marginal Ice Zone Camp #2 with 9 overflights and a pass over the groomed skiway. The leg near Banks Island (EBC-EBD) was to survey the very thin ice which typically forms in this region.

Neven's just reminded me that I've missed an update or two, so here are the IceBridge flightplans for Tuesday and Wednesday.

According to the IceBridge page on Facebook today:

Quote
No flight today. Blowing snow resulting in low visibility on the runway at Thule Air Base prevents us from taking off today. We are currently in storm condition "bravo" and have to use the "buddy system" to travel between buildings on base.

Chris Reynolds reports on the ASIB that:

Quote
The IceBridge data portal is here: http://nsidc.org/icebridge/portal/

Large text files containing ice and snow thickness (and other data), with time date, and latitude/longitude of each sample are available here: http://nsidc.org/data/idcsi2

Unfortunately it seems that the IceBridge Portal is currently undergoing a bit of maintenance:

A couple more IceBridge flight plans. Tuesday was a complex operation over a variety of Ellesmere Island glaciers. After a stormy day on Wednesday Thursday's flight was a triangular flight over the North Canada Basin.

The IceBridge P-3 is en route to Kangerlussuaq today.

Jim;
Today IceBridge 2014, is on a Helheim visit, one of the most active glaciers in Greenland.

Looking forward to the images later today.

Just updated the Helheim thread because there is plenty of calving action there at the moment. BTW.
