CryoSat ice campaign
The CryoSat Arctic campaign is taking place during April and May 2011 to validate data from ESA’s CryoSat ice mission.

The aim is to gather a wealth of in-situ data using a range of instruments on the ground and radar installed on aircraft. These measurements taken on and over land and sea ice, and can then be compared with the data being received from CryoSat in orbit.
