NASA : NASA's IceBridge Flies Over the Front of a Greenland Glacier.- IceBridge de la NASA sobrevuela la parte frontal de un glaciar de Groenlandia

Hola amigos: A VUELO DE UN QUINDE EL BLOG., Operación IceBridge, reconocimiento aéreo de la NASA de los hielos polares, ha regresado de la misión Umanaq B a lo largo de la costa occidental de Groenlandia. Esta visión de arriba hacia abajo de un avión de NOAA P-3 muestra la parte frontal del parto de Sermeq Kujatdleq glaciar. de la aeronave # 2 inferior góndola del motor y carenado izquierdo del tren de aterrizaje principal está en el primer plano en la parte superior.

Operation IceBridge, NASA's airborne survey of polar ice, has returned from the Umanaq B mission along Greenland's western coast. This top-down view from a NOAA P-3 aircraft shows the calving front of Sermeq Kujatdleq glacier. The aircraft's #2 lower engine nacelle and left main landing gear fairing is in the foreground at top.
 
This year marks IceBridge's eighth spring campaign of science flights over Arctic sea and land. During the seven previous years of operations in the Arctic, IceBridge has gathered large volumes of data on changes in the elevation of the ice sheet and its internal structure. Measurements from IceBridge have revealed a 460-mile-long (740 kilometers) canyon hiding under a mile of ice and mapped the extent of a vast liquid water aquifer beneath the snow in southern Greenland. IceBridge’s readings of the thickness of sea ice and its snow cover have helped scientists improve forecasts for the summer melt season and have enhanced the understanding of variations in ice thickness distribution from year to year.
