GLISTIN-A- Glacier and Ice Surface Topography Interferometer

Friday, March 24, 2017

The Ka-band radar aboard the JSC G-III successfully completed the Oceans Melting Greenland mission on Wednesday, March 22.  Altogether, we flew 10 science flights (and one pure transit flight) over a 13-day period from March 10-22 and acquired 85 planned flight lines over the coastal glaciers in Greenland.  We also acquired several opportunistic sea ice lines to cross-check calibration of the processor.  Attached is a quick look DEM (digital elevation model) generated by our deployment team in Greenland over Leidy Gletscher and Marie Gletscher just north of Thule.
