On November 19, Operation IceBridge flew a successful 10.9 hour mission to the Pine Island region of Antarctica. All instruments collected data along previous ICESat and CryoSat satellite tracks in an effort to calibrate and validate the measurements taken by the spacecraft. IceBridge wraps up next week after an exciting campaign based in Punta Arenas, Chile.
