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 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).
SENtinel-2 and FLuorescence EXperiment (SEN2FLEX) campaign combines different activities in support of initiatives related both to fluorescence experiments and Sentinel-2 initiative for prototyping of resolutions to meet mission requirements.
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.
