    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).
