OIB ATM Sitrep Nov 22, 2017 pm

Today OIB flew the Sea Ice – TanDEM-X B flight in excellent weather conditions, which marks our second under flight of the TanDEM-X spacecraft.  All OIB instruments operated successfully, with only a few minor issues.  So, another exciting sea ice mission in the books.

We are due for a hard-down day tomorrow, which will coincidentally allow us to celebrate (American) Thanksgiving here in Ushuaia.  We will resume science flights on Friday/Saturday, and will prepare to head back to the US on Monday.
Below is a map of today’s flight,  a photo of the peninsula by Alexey Chibisov, and a plot of ATM data over some sea ice we sampled today.
