In 43 hours across five science flights in late November 2013, NASA's P-3 research aircraft collected more than 20,000 km worth of science data. Instruments gathered information about the thickness of the ice over sub glacial lakes, mountains, coasts, and frozen seas. The flights over Antarctica were part of Operation IceBridge, a multi-year mission to monitor conditions in Antarctica and the Arctic until a new ice-monitoring satellite, ICESat-2, launches in 2016.
