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.
In this campaign, the data gap for broad leaf forests is addressed as suitable reference datasets of sufficient quality do not exist.
The AgriSAR 2009 campaign was defined to leverage the RADARSAT-2 mission to better understand and demonstrate the potential for GMES land monitoring user services, particularly in agriculture.
The general purpose of the EAGLE2006 campaign was:
Acquisition of simultaneous multi-angular and multi-sensor (from visible to microwave domain) data over a grassland and a forest.
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.
The objectives of the TerraSAR SIM project were to quantify the impact of the time
intervals between SAR acquisitions at different wavelengths on agricultural
