With all baseline-priority missions completed we were able to fly a mission from the next tier, the high-priority mission Southeast Glaciers 01.  This mission is especially scenic when the weather cooperates, which it did today.  More than that, this mission is notorious for its turbulent conditions, which were non-existent until a few good bumps on last glacier;  we also got another big knock during our approach in to Kangerlussuaq.  Luckily, we made it through with all instruments and personnel in working order.  As usual, we will attempt another mission tomorrow.

Attached are a few screenshots and an animated plot of one of the glaciers we flew today.
