Video slate image reads, "Greenland Ice Changes (GIC 1)Plane flies over Greenland revealing changes in elevation data taken from onboard Laser Altimeter.  Airplane's motion path should be identical to previous Beach Mapping and Mars Laser Altimeter motion paths, thereby allowing a smooth dissolve between this and the other two animations".
