    Campaign

    DOMEX-1

    The purpose of the DOMEX experiment was to acquire the first combined, in-situ microwave emission measurements using C- and L-band radiometers.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    DOMEx-2

    The DOMEx-2 campaign is part of the calibration and validation activities of the SMOS mission, which is mission of the Earth Exploreres within ESA's Living Planet programme.

    Campaign

    LOSAC

    The L-band Ocean Salinity Airborne Campaign (LOSAC) objective is to understand the nature of the wind driven signatures in order to evaluate if corrections are necessary prior to salinity estimations based on the radiometer signals.

    DOMECair (GOCE)

    The airborne survey DOMECair 2013 and its instrumentation was designed to obtain calibration and validation data for two different satellite missions of ESA’s Earth Explorer mission, for satellites SMOS and GOCE.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    DOMECair (SMOS)

    The purpose of this campaign was to assess the merits of the East Antarctic Plateau around Dome C with the Concordia station as a candidate for an Earthly calibration site. It was an airborne campaign in Antarctica supporting SMOS calibration.
