—In support of the European Space Agency Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission, a number of soil moisture and sea salinity campaigns, including airborne L-band radiometer measurements, have been carried out. The radiome-ter used in this context is fully polarimetric and has built-in radio-frequency-interference (RFI)-detection capabilities. Thus,(More)

ESA has assigned the Technical University of Denmark to develop an airborne P-band ice sounding radar demonstrator. 1 The intention is to obtain a better understanding of the electromagnetic properties of the Antarctic ice sheet at P-band and to test novel ice sounding techniques in preparation for a potential spaceborne ice sounding radar. The airborne(More)
