    Campaign

    WISE

    The objective of WInd and Salinity Experiment 2001 (WISE 2001) campaign was to get more data points and better wind speed measurements.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    SPARC

    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.

    Campaign

    SnowSAR Proof Of Concept

    The main objective of the SnowSAR campaign was the provision of radiometric calibrated airborne SAR data needed to characterise the backscattering signatures of snow and other terrain types (e.g. trees).

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    SnowSAR (NOSREX, TVCEXP and ALPSAR)

    As a candidate of the Earth Explorer Programme, the European Space Agency proposed the (CoReH2O) mission, consisting of a satellite mission for the monitoring of snow, glaciers and surface water, based on a dual frequency SAR sensor.

    Campaign

    SMOSice

    The ESA SMOSice study has demonstrated for the first time the potential to retrieve sea ice thickness from SMOS data.

    Campaign

    POLARIS Proof of Concept 2008

    The POLARIS Proof-of-Concept (PoC) 2008 campaign primarily aimed to verify the usefulness of the system for glaciological applications.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    POLARIS - Proof of Concept 2009

    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.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    POLARIS

    In February 2011, ESA's POLarimetric Airborne Radar Ice Sounder (POLARIS) system was flown for the first time in the Antarctic, as part of the POLARIS IceGrav Antarctic Campaign 2011, ICEGRAV project.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    PolarGap

    The primary objective of the PolarGap campaign was to carry out an airborne gravity survey covering the southern polar gap of the gravity field mission GOCE, beyond the coverage of the GOCE orbit.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    NoSREx-I -II and -III

    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.

  • Campaign

    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.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    LaRA

    To improve our knowledge of how best to measure ice thickness, the airborne Laser and Radar Altimeter campaign (LaRA) was carried out over the frozen expanses of northern Greenland.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    IceSAR 2012

    In the frame of IceSAR 2012, airborne SAR campaigns were carried out in Greenland in support of the Biomass candidate Earth Explorer mission.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    IceSAR 2007

    The objectives of IceSAR 2007 campaign was to acquire SAR images and complementary data over sea and land ice for preparation of Sentinel-1 mission and for providing a basis for the assessment of potential applications of Biomass mission.

  • Campaign

    Campaign

    ESAG

    The European Survey of Arctic Gravity (ESAG) campaign objective was to acquire measurements of the Arctic Ocean, in support of GOCE mission; and acquire scanning laser ranging data and profiling laser altimetry over sea-ice north of Greenland.

    DOMEX-3

    The DOMEX-3 experiment is the follow on of two previous experiments called DOMEX-1 and DOMEX-2 which were successfully conducted at Concordia base, Antarctica

  • 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

    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

    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.
