The objective of the airborne campaign Water Vapour Lidar Experiment (WALEX) is to collect valuable data to provide representative lidar measurements of water vapour and aerosol properties in different climatic zones.
The aim of this study was to perform Gravity Wave (GW) observations with the airborne IRLI GLORIA on board of HALO. In this way for a first time 3-D tomographic reconstructions of mesoscale GW events in the lower stratosphere were taken.
The ESA Sounder Campaign 2011 (ESSenCe) conducted field measurements utilising the high-altitude research aircraft Geophysica to quantify processes that control the composition and structure of the mid to upper troposphere and lower stratosphere.
The BACCHUS-DOC Radar and Optical Campaign was an area mapping project of
vineyards near Frascati (Italy). ESA required high resolution geo-referenced airborne SAR data of different wavelength and polarisation (preferably polarimetric).
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.
