  • Campaign

    CryoVEx 2016 (Spring) 2016

    Campaign

    CryoVEx 2016 (Spring)

    CryoVEx 2016 campaign was primarily carried out to follow up on a recommendation given within ESA CryoVal Land Ice project (2014-2015), where it was found that the traditional under-flights of the Cryosat-2 satellite were inadequate.

  • Campaign

    CryoVex KAREN 2016 Fall 2016

    Campaign

    CryoVex KAREN 2016 Fall

    The CryoVex-KAREN 2016 Fall Campaign in Ilulissat, Greenland had the goal to collect unique measurements to help us better understand how snow and ice on the Greenland ice sheet is changing over time, and help ESA design future space missions to monitor the changing climate in our polar regions.

  • Campaign

    PolarGap 2015 - 2016

    Campaign

    PolarGap

    The primary objective of the PolarGap campaign was to carry out an airborne gravity survey covering the southern polar gap of the gravity field mission GOCE, beyond the coverage of the GOCE orbit.

  • Campaign

    CryoVEx Ant 2014 to 2015 2014 - 2015

    Campaign

    CryoVEx Ant 2014 to 2015

    The aim of CryoVEx Ant 2014 to 2015 was to perform altimeter measurements at a designated validation site in the vicinity of the Schirmacher Oasis, near Kohnen and Neumayer as well as in the Pine Island Glacier drainage basin.
