OIB ATM sitrep March 29, 2017 pm

OIB completed the “North Ellesmere 01” mission today. Just a few sections of clouds impacted a few lines, otherwise data was acquired over the great majority of the science lines. Also had some mild turbulence, but nothing that interfered with the remote sensing instruments. Ellesmere missions are very pretty, we covered about 20 glaciers today, and the photos below show some of the views.
 
We hope to continue our run of missions tomorrow, weather permitting.
