Science flight over the Recovery Glacier area southeast of the peninsula region. Included over flight of Shackleton Range, Slessor Glacier, Bailey Ice Steam, and several suspected submerged lakes. Data collection altitude was approximately 1500 ft AGL where ATM, DMS, Ku radar, Snow radar, MCords radar and Gravimeter collected data. In route cruise altitude to start of data runs was FL350/370 and return flight was at FL400. Recovery Glacier data start/stop times (UTC) were approximately 1611/1938. Weather at the Recovery Glacier was clear with light winds allowing for 100% data collected on each ground track. After completing all data tracks then the return course included extending the final course line to allow data to be collected at the glacier ground line. Two calibration ramp pass were accomplished at the beginning of the flight at times 1200 & 1207 UTC. Takeoff time at 311 11 54 00 & landing at 311 23 49 29. 3.5 hrs science data collection.
