CLPX-II - Cold Lands Processes eXperiment Part 2
The objective is to understand the microwave radiative transfer and thermal signatures of snow packs. Ground-based snow pit and course measurements as well as airborne and ground-based active and passive radiometric measurements will be carried out. The BAe146-301 will be based in Fairbanks Alaska and make remote sensing measurements over the surface sites as well as possibly performing deep profiles of the atmosphere to establish the thermal background necessary for the radiative transfer. Further flights for the calibration and validation of IASI may be flown over the US ARM site at Barrow.
