NASA Operation IceBridge Campaign Details

This page provides information on the NASA Operation IceBridge campaigns flown since 2009. The information is also provided in the IceBridge Mission Flight Reports, a data set published at NSIDC DAAC. Only flights designated as science flights are included (i.e., transit flights are not included).

Table 1 lists the geographic regions and corresponding campaigns. Each entry in Table 1 links to an individual table below, which provides more information on a specific IceBridge campaign. Table 2 lists the instruments that were used to collect data.

Note: In the campaign tables below, rows highlighted in green are ICESat and ICESat-2 underflights, while rows highlighted in yellow are CryoSat-2 underflights. An x in an instrument column indicates that the instrument was operational and collecting data on the flight. A blank field indicates that the instrument was not operational.
