The main objective of this AROMAT-I campaign was to test newly developed airborne sensors and to evaluate their capabilities as validation tools for future air quality space borne sensors, in particular TROPOMI.
The Nordic Snow Radar Experiment (NoSREx) took place between November 2009 and May 2010. The objective of the campaign was to provide a continuous time series of active and passive microwave observations of snow cover in a representative location.
POLARIS - Proof of Concept (PoC) 2009 is a follow on campaign from POLARIS - PoC 2008. It focused on an additional POLARIS test with the objective to system test after system upgrade and the acquisition of fully polarimetric data of glaciological interest.
The Dutch research team ROVE (Radar Observation on Vegetation), funded by the remote sensing organization NIWARS, started in 1974 to investigate the scattering of microwaves by crops and soils, in order to help interpretation of radar imagery.
ESA's SPectra bARrax Campaign (SPARC) activity was part of the preparatory study for a proposed ESA Earth Explorer mission called SPECTRA. The objective was to collect a CHRIS/PROBA reference dataset for SPECTRA-related studies.
