Latest IceBridge Campaign

Arctic 2015

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

This spring, NASA’s Operation IceBridge will carry out another research campaign to study changes in the Arctic. Starting in early March, the IceBridge team will survey land and sea ice in Greenland and the Arctic Ocean during a field research campaign that lasts until late May.

IceBridge researchers will fly aboard NASA’s C-130 research aircraft, which is based at Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The C-130 will fly out of Thule Air Base and Kangerlussuaq in Greenland, with a one-week temporary deployment to Fairbanks, Alaska. IceBridge continues a record of large-scale measurements in the Arctic that started with NASA’s ICESat satellite – which operated from 2003 to 2009 – and will continue when ICESat-2 launches in 2017.

The Arctic campaign will run from March 9 to May 22, 2015.
