NASA completes spring airborne mapping Arctic sea ice

"Operation IceBridge, NASA’s longest-running airborne mission to monitor polar ice change, concluded this year’s springtime survey of Arctic sea and land ice on May 2. The flights, which began on March 22, covered the western basin of the Arctic Ocean and Greenland’s fastest-changing glaciers. 'This campaign achieved most of our primary objectives in surveying the state of Arctic ice,' said IceBridge’s acting project scientist Joe MacGregor. 'We’ve now flown many of these missions ten years in a row, a period that has included continued rapid change in both Arctic glaciers and sea ice.'" - Excerpt from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
