Worked closely with Dr. Tim Urban to visually construct pathways of IceSat-1 and porjected IceSat-2 along Antarctica and Greenland. Applied the satellite tracks to prior knowledge of the area and recommend regions in which further data should be extracted from for the IceSat-2 satellite launch in early 2017. Generated shell scripts, used GMT to create maps for data visualization, and worked with FORTRAN.
