ICECAP Investigates East Antarctica

Operation Ice Bridge scientists and crew completed 21 successful flights over West Antarctica and returned home in time for Thanksgiving. Still flights over the icy continent continue. Scientists with another field campaign -- Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate, or simply ICECAP -- are making ongoing airborne investigations over East Antarctica.

ICECAP, for which NASA's Ice Bridge is funding some of the flights, is an international collaboration with principal investigators from University of Texas at Austin's Jackson School of Geosciences, the University of Edinburgh, and the Australian Antarctic Division. The goal is to use airborne instruments to chart ice-buried lowlands, which could show how Earth's climate changed in the past and how future climate change will affect global sea level.
