Operation IceBridge, a six-year NASA mission, is the largest airborne survey of Earth's polar ice ever flown. Data collected during IceBridge will help scientists bridge the gap in polar observations between NASA's Ice, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite (ICESat), in orbit from 2003 to 2009, and ICESat-2, planned for launch in late 2015, making IceBridge critical for ensuring a continuous series of observations. Operation IceBridge is using airborne instruments to map Arctic and Antarctic areas… CONTINUE READING
