Latest IceBridge Campaign

Arctic 2014

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

For 11 weeks this spring, NASA's Operation IceBridge will survey land and sea ice in Greenland, the Canadian Archipelago and Arctic Ocean. From early March through the end of May, IceBridge researchers will study  rapidly changing parts of the Greenland Ice Sheet, such as Jakobshavn Glacier, and monitor Arctic sea ice north of Greenland and across the Arctic Basin to regions north of Alaska.

The P-3 airborne laboratory based out of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., will operate out of airfields in Thule and Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, and Fairbanks, Alaska, and carry an array of scientific instruments to measure sea and land ice. The 2014 Arctic campaign adds to a dataset started in 2003 by NASA's ICESat satellite, maintaining continuity until the future launch of ICESat-2. In addition, IceBridge will have many opportunities to collaborate with partnering organizations such as the European Space Agency, Canadian Space Agency and U.S. Geological Survey.
