Denman 02

OIB completed the Denman Glacier flowline portion of the “Denman 02” land ice mission today under a high (10,000’ overcast) with some upstream turbulence. Due to the distant science target location and fuel concerns the Scott Glacier centerline was not flown. All OIB remote sensing instruments reported good data collection.

Tomorrow is a hard down day (based on weather forecasts and predicted future crew rest requirements)
