- CryoVEx 2012
What was the purpose of CryoVEx 2012?
In continuation of the CryoSat Validation Experiment (CryoVEx) carried out in 2011, ESA initiated a second Arctic post-launch campaign in 2012 to further calibrate and validate CryoSat data products.
The main purpose of CryoVEx 2012 was to acquire data along transects of CryoSat ground tracks through a coordinated major effort involving a large group of European, Canadian and US scientists.
What was the outcome of CryoVEx 2012?
The CryoVEx 2012 campaign was a success and the CryoVEx team obtained a collection of unique measurements to analyse.
