ICEBRIDGE: NASA is kicking off the second year of its Operation IceBridge, the largest airborne survey of Earth’s polar ice, with a study in Greenland this week. The survey is conducted from NASA’s DC-8 flying science laboratory. It was scheduled to depart from NASA’s Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif., on March 21 for Thule, Greenland. Scientists will conduct 10-12 missions over the Arctic during a five-week period, focused on Arctic sea ice, which reaches its maximum extent in March and early April.
