Mission Summary: 

Hi everyone

After a weather down day yesterday, today we completed two 5.5 hour sorties over southern Greenland with a refuel in Narsarsuaq. Conditions were excellent today with clear skies across the region. The flights covered 3 grid lines south and inland of Nuuk plus 5 Icesat lines across southern Greenland. The outbound leg was flown at 28,000’ as filed. The return was also filed for 28,000’ but after finding more favorable winds at the initial altitude of 19,000’, thats where we decided to stay for the rest of the flight: going to 28,000’ for the survey would have meant cutting lines short or exceeding our 12 hour extended opening of Kangerlussuaq. Both LVIS and the camera operated normally. A map of today’s lines is attached below.   Colored lines indicated data coverage so far. Blue lines indicate lines flown today.
After an extended crew rest tonight, we plan to take off slightly later tomorrow for lines in eastern Greenland.
Thanks all,
Michelle
