The Oceans Melting Greenland mission seeks to understand how ocean water is contributing to ice loss in Greenland. In October 2017, mission scientists and crew dropped 240 ocean probes from a C-130 aircraft into the waters around Greenland to measure ocean temperature. Footage includes interior and exterior shots of the aircraft with crew and scientists at work, and shots from a chase plane showing the probes dropping. https://omg.jpl.nasa.gov/portal
