Doppler Aerosol Wind Lidar (DAWN) is an airborne instrument that uses pulsed lasers to detect the movement of atmospheric aerosols such as dust or sea salt. In detecting those movements, it can profile wind vector — both speed and direction.

Over almost a decade of studying glaciers from the air 🛩 , the Operation Alaska team has more than doubled the number of Alaskan glaciers being measured. They’ve discovered that Alaskan glaciers 🏔 are losing 75 gigatons of ice ❄️ every year.

Doppler Aerosol Wind Lidar (DAWN) uses laser pulses to take highly accurate measurements of vector wind speed & direction. In its upcoming airborne campaign, scientists will use DAWN to validate measurements from ADM-Aeolus wind speed satellite.

From yesterday's flight: A tabular iceberg can be seen on the right, floating among sea ice just off of the Larsen C ice shelf. The iceberg's sharp angles and flat surface indicate that it probably recently calved from the ice shelf.

From yesterday's flight: Winds flowing off the ice shelf help form tendrils of frazil ice (accumulation of ice crystals in supercooled water) on the ocean that coalesce into thin sea ice adjacent to a coastal polynya (opening in the sea ice).
