This fall a new NASA airborne campaign known as the Arctic Radiation – IceBridge Sea and Ice Experiment, or ARISE, will conduct research flights out of bases in Greenland and Alaska to study how changing Arctic ice affects clouds and climate.

Researchers will use a collection of instruments aboard NASA's C-130 research aircraft, operated by Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, to measure ice elevation, incoming sunlight and outgoing infrared radiation and various cloud properties to get a more complete understanding of climate processes in the Arctic. In addition, ARISE will fly under NASA satellites and over ground-based research stations and surface ships to compare measurements from the surface, air and space.

The ARISE campaign will run from August 25 to October 3, 2014.
