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.

The Ka-band single-pass interferometer aboard the AFRC C-20A jet is on its Western US glacier survey deployment (PI: Andrew Fountain). So far we have completed observations over glaciers in Sierra Nevada (California) and the Cascades in Oregon and Washington State.
We have completed preliminary processing of all the data takes acquired in Greenland back in March for the Oceans Melting Greenland mission.
