Latest IceBridge Campaign

Antarctic 2014

Operation IceBridge Logo IceBridge
Flying over the poles to monitor critical areas of Earth's ice sheets, glaciers and sea ice

This October and November, NASA's Operation IceBridge will conduct its sixth Antarctic field campaign. IceBridge researchers will collect data on Antarctic land and sea ice using NASA's DC-8 airborne laboratory, which is operated by the Armstrong Flight Research Center in California.

The NASA DC-8 will fly from Punta Arenas, Chile, to conduct surveys of the Antarctic Peninsula, parts of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and sea ice in the Bellingshausen, Weddell and Amundsen seas. These surveys are intended to measure surface elevation and thickness to monitor annual changes to land and sea ice. Of particular interest are the Pine Island and Thwaites glacier regions, which have seen increasing losses in recent years.

The Antarctic campaign will run from October 14 to November 23, 2014.
