Denman 01 Mop-up

OIB successfully completed the “Denman 01 Mop-up” mission, to survey the Denman and Scott Glaciers upstream of their grounding lines. The weather was clear with light turbulence, and all OIB remote sensing instruments on the GV reported good data collection, with the MCoRDS antenna showing a possible loose connection at the end of the survey lines (but still acquiring good data).

Weather will be assessed tomorrow and a mission flown if possible.
