NASA’s Operation IceBridge has added to its body of work this season with two more science flights over Antarctica, one collecting data on ice streams and subglacial lakes near the Ronne Ice Shelf and one measuring the rapidly-changing Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica.
On Oct. 28, the IceBridge team carried out a survey of the Foundation Ice Stream and Support Force Glacier, measuring surface elevation with laser altimeters and collecting ice-penetrating radar data on a series of subglacial lakes in the region. This flight repeated survey lines flown during the 2012 campaign, which will help researchers understand how ice there is changing over time.
