Mission Summary: 

HI folks

Today we completed flight HelKang2, adding 3 glacier lines that were dropped from flight HelKang1 last week because of wind/range concerns. The western half of the country was predominantly clouded, but data were collected on the transits on the eastern side to and from the lines. Data lines were clear although some clouds were present around the calving front of Helheim. LVIS and camera operated normally. 
Attached are a couple pictures taken by David Rabine (61A) of a couple of the smaller glacier systems between Helheim and Kangerdlussuaq from 28,000’ along with a map of the lines flown on today’s flight.
Thanks,
michelle
