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.
The major objectives of the experiment were the temporal survey of the variation of the measurements in time scales ranging from diurnal, weekly, monthly, up to 12 months of observation.
The Dutch research team ROVE (Radar Observation on Vegetation), funded by the remote sensing organization NIWARS, started in 1974 to investigate the scattering of microwaves by crops and soils, in order to help interpretation of radar imagery.
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.
This campaign covers the fields of atmospheric composition: NO2, SO2, aerosols, over Romania (Bucharest and Turceni) and Germany (Berlin).
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.
In this project an Airborne Wind Vector Scatterometer (AWVS) system was designed and built for measurements of sea surface backscattering from an aircraft.
AfriScat campaign, a follow on to TropiSCAT campaign, was to acquire long-term P-Band radar data in an African tropical forest.
