Learn about the ground-based, ship-borne, balloon-borne, and airborne campaigns and small satellite field experiments that validate orbiting ESA EO satellites and support future mission development.
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.
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.
CryoVEX 2014 performed measurements over the Beaufort Sea and Arctic Ocean north of Canada (Ellesmere Island) and Greenland. Airborne surveys and ground‐based snow and ice measurements were performed.
The aims of the CryoSat Validation Experiment (CryoVEx) 2011 was to study the snow and ice characteristics of Arctic sea ice and its snow cover.
The CryoVEx 2010/2011 Antartic campaign was carried out in Dronning Maud Land from 11 November 2010 to 20 February 2011.
The key objective of the CryoSat Validation Experiment Antarctica (CryoVExAnt) campaign is a better approximation of the error range of the elevation obtained from SAR-processed altimetric radar returns and its sensitivity to surface roughness.
The CryoVEx (CryoSat Validation EXperiment) 2003 campaign was a first comprehensive Arctic Ocean airborne and surface campaign, in support of the ESA satellite CryoSat, planned for launch late 2004.
The European Survey of Arctic Gravity (ESAG) campaign objective was to acquire measurements of the Arctic Ocean, in support of GOCE mission; and acquire scanning laser ranging data and profiling laser altimetry over sea-ice north of Greenland.
