Operation IceBridge Ross Sea Science Flight Highlight Reel

  • Released Tuesday, December 24, 2013

A highlight reel set to music.

NASA's Operation IceBridge is a six-year airborne science mission to study Earth's polar ice with a range of instruments including lasers, radars, a magnetometer, and a gravimeter. This year for the first time the mission based its operations out of the National Science Foundation's McMurdo Station and its floating sea ice runway. The majority of IceBridge's science flights in this campaign were over land ice — ice sheets, floating ice shelves, and glaciers. But it also few an 8-hour science flight over the seasonal sea ice of the Ross Sea. Here are some of the video highlights from that flight.
