    CryoVex KAREN Antarctica 2017 2018 2017 - 2018

    Campaign

    CryoVex KAREN Antarctica 2017 2018

    ESA’s CryoVEx/Karen 2017‐18 campaign took place in Antarctica in from Dec 2017 to Jan 2018. The campaign was composed of an airborne and in‐situ campaign and acquired extensive data sets of scanning lidar, Ku‐ and Ka‐band nadir‐looking radar, and auxiliary imagery for validation of the ESA CryoSat‐2 satellite (Ku‐band radar altimetry) and the French‐Indian AltiKa mission (Ka‐band radar altimetry).

    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.

    CryoVEx ASIRAS 2014

    Campaign

    CryoVEx ASIRAS

    The CryoVEx 2014 airborne campaign was conducted as two separate operational periods. The sea ice activities covering large parts of the western Arctic Ocean were planned to take place early in the season to make sure the weather was stable.
