Greenland: Multiple Flight Paths Showing Ice Change
This animation shows all the strips of data collected by the aircraft-mounted laser altimeter flying over Greenland. Match-moved to animations #584 and #582.
Video slate image reads, "Greenland Ice Changes (GIC 4)
Shows the multimple flight paths taken from laser altimeter equipped aircraft over Greenland. This scene picks up where scene GIC 1 leaves off (camera angles, lighting, etc. should be identical)and also follows the identical motion path of GIC 3, allowing it to either be attached onto the end of GIC 1, or dissolved midway through GIC 3.
