Science flight over Thwaites and Pine Island Glacier areas southwest of the peninsula region. Included detailed mapping over flight of the Pine Island rift. 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 and return flight was at FL400. Data start/stop times (UTC) for IceSat lines were approximately 1745/1831 & 1854/1939. Data start/stop times (UTC) for CryoSat lines were approximately 1955/2039 & 2047/2133. Data start/stop times (UTC) for Pine Island rift lines were approximately 2142/2145 southbound & 2151/2155 northbound. Weather at the site was clear allowing for 100% data collected on each ground track. Sea ice data was collected to/from site. One calibration ramp pass was accomplished at the beginning of the flight at time 1407UTC. Takeoff time at 316 13 59 20 & landing at 317 01 32 47. 5.7 hrs science data collection.
