Operation IceBridge personnel participated in this year’sGoddard Science Jamboree on June 5. The yearly event is an opportunity forscientists and engineers at Goddard to share information about their meetingswith each other. This year’s Science Jamboree featured displays from a varietyof Goddard’s science missions, career panel talks, Hyperwall demonstrations,information sessions and a special lecture by Goddard Chief Scientist JimGarvin.

Members of the Airborne Topographic Mapper (ATM) and Land,Vegetation and Ice Sensor (LVIS) instrument teams ran display tables with posters,photos and videos alongside a general IceBridge information display, adding awealth of information about the airborne polar mission. IceBridge scientistsand engineers answered questions about polar science, IceBridge’s instrumentsand the experience of surveying Arctic and Antarctic ice from the air. With thecompletion of a record-breaking Arctic campaign and several weeks of intenseAntarctic campaign planning ahead, the Science Jamboree was a good chance formembers of the IceBridge team to get together and show off all of their hardwork. Special thanks go out to all the people who took time out of their busy days to make the IceBridge presence at this year’s jamboree a success.
