ARISE Arctic Campaign Takes Shape

Crews at NASA Goddard’s Wallops Flight Facility are hard at work integrating a suite of instruments into a C-130 aircraft in preparation for the start of the ARISE campaign later this month. ARISE, which stands for Arctic Radiation IceBridge Sea and Ice Experiment, will make simultaneous measurements of ice, clouds and levels of incoming and outgoing radiation, the balance of which determines the degree of climate warming.
