    Description

    The principal purpose of the EMISAR flights is to collect L- and C-band polarimetric SAR data as well as interferometric SAR data for the scientific studies conducted by DCRS. However, some flights have an additional technological purpose as they serve as a test and verification of new EMISAR options.
    In 1998 EMISAR was operated in Denmark, Greenland, Iceland and at Svalbard Seven campaigns with a total of 18 flights were conducted
    In January, a potential meteorite impact site at Frederikshåb Isblink was mapped (see the project Meteorite search). In March, EMISAR collected sea ice data at Svalbard, and simultaneously a German aircraft collected infrared and visible data from the same area. On campaigns in mid April, May, June and July data from Foulum, Ålborg, and Råbjerg Mile were collected. Finally, on a six day campaign in August the Nioghalvfjersfjordgletscher in northern Greenland, the Geikie plateau in east Greenland and a more than 10,000 square kilometers area at Hekla, Iceland, were mapped.
