NASA | IceBridge Mission Over the Antarctic Peninsula

The IceBridge science team and DC-8 crew flew a mission over the Antarctic Peninsula on Saturday, November 13th. This video provides a snapshot of the flight from the field and describes the challenges faced with weather and terrain. Though the forecast showed low cloud ceilings over the target area, the team departed for the peninsula on Saturday morning, optimistic for a successful flight. All instruments collected data for several glaciers before the weather conditions forced an early return to Punta Arenas.
