Steve thanks for much for caring2share this very cool (no pun intended) news item and incredible photo!
... learning all the time & this statement from the context of this story defines the mission:
" IceBridge’s readings of the thickness of sea ice and its snow cover have helped scientists improve forecasts for the summer melt season and have enhanced the understanding of variations in ice thickness distribution from year to year."
Glaciers are alive & critical to providing key information needed, while climate change is very real we must save our Blue Planet!

Thanks, Steve, an awesome photo of cloud streets and sea ice in the Sea of Okhotsk on Feb. 8, 2016. It reminds me of the work of Ansel Adams.
