Today we flew the much anticipated “Thomas-Jakobshavn 01” flight, which was our first real chance at collecting data in that area. The weather fully cooperated and we flew our longest flight yet on this campaign.
We collected data for over 9 hours and we had no instrument problems. The majority of the lines were mostly “white” (i.e. pictures aren’t meaningful), but I have attached a couple of pictures – one of the calving front of Jakobshavn and the other one was some very thin sea ice taken by Linette Boisvert.
Tomorrow we plan on another flight but we’ll have to take another look at weather in the morning.
