After two successful surveys from Thule Air Base, IceBridge packed up and headed to Fairbanks, Alaska, for a temporary deployment there. For the past few years IceBridge has flown surveys from Fairbanks to study sea ice in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas north of Alaska.

IceBridge has a couple more surveys to fly from Fairbanks before finishing up its week-long Alaska deployment. Once finished, the P-3 will head back across the Arctic Basin to continue collecting sea ice data out of Thule Air Base in Greenland. IceBridge, a six-year NASA mission, is the largest airborne survey of Earth's polar ice ever flown.
