Flying Low over Southeast Greenland

In this video you will see Greenland’s glaciers from 500 meters above the ice, from the cockpit of a NASA’s Operation IceBridge P-3B airborne laboratory low over the Arctic.

The cockpit camera installed and operated by NSERC the National Suborbital Education and Research Center, recorded on April 9,2013 in southeast Greenland

Following a glacier’s sometimes winding flow line gives IceBridge researchers a perspective on the ice not possible from satellites which pass in straight lines overhead. By gathering such data, IceBridge is helping to build a continuous record of change in the polar regions.
