Mission: 
OIB
Mission Location: 
Antarctica
Mission Summary: 

This is a new flight, designed to improve the density of airborne gravity measurements over the Larsen C ice shelf. Most of the lines are designed along IceSat-2 ground tracks. We also directly overfly the Bawden Ice Rise.
 
The flight went very well with no weather impacts or major instrument issues. Noise was present in one channel of the MCORDS and Accumulation radar systems which will be investigated. Some window fogging was also present during a small portion of the flight for DMS.
