Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) is a NASA campaign aimed at understanding the ice-ocean interaction in Greenland by documenting how the ocean circulates in the fjords near Greenland and the effect it has on Greenland’s marine-terminating glaciers. 10 deployments have taken place since OMG began in the summer of 2015, including the most recent one that occurred in early 2020. OMG utilizes a host of aircraft and ships that are equipped with sensors to conduct bathymetry mapping, as well as measure oceanic parameters such as salinity and temperature. OMG was funded by NASA’s EVS-2 program.
