Today we’re back to the expected, cold, blustery, and snowing weather; it feels like -13F with the 57mph winds. However, yesterday evening we had calm winds and clear skies, so after another CTD, the UAV team got in a couple more drone flights.
The crew moved the ship right up against the sea ice so the UAVs could get good images for later data collection.
However, it was such a nice day, they sent the UAVs up almost 4,000 feet to get some awesome shots too!
Just a Reminder
