Description

EMISAR has participated in the European Multi-sensor Airborne Campaign (EMAC) organised and financed by the European Space Agency (ESA). In June 1994 and in March, May, and July 1995 EMISAR collected fully polarimetric L- and C- band data from the NOPEX site at Uppsala, Sweden and from three ice and snow sites in Norway and Finland. Additionally, on each campaign the Danish calibration site at Foulum was mapped in order to allow calibration verification.
The processing of the EMAC'95 data was completed in 1996. By then more than 50 GB of focused and calibrated data had been delivered to ESA for dissemination to Principal Investigators in Europe. An analysis of the internal and external calibration data has proved that the EMISAR stability justifies using just a single external calibration per mission.
In April 1997 the EMAC-94/95 Final Results Meeting was held, and the proceedings from this meeting are expected early 1998. (Related projects - see: www.dcrs.dtu.dk).
