Operation IceBridge Antarctica 2009

Operation IceBridge is the largest airborne survey of Earth's polar ice ever flown. The six-year mission will yield an unprecedented three-dimensional view of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice, providing a yearly look at the behavior of the rapidly changing features of the Greenland and Antarctic ice. This video documents the first year of the campaign over Antarctica. Mission website: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/icebridge/index.html
