Earth Observation Satellite Mission. aerial scenes are glorious but you can see the damage.

Developing a space mission is a long process that involves a lot of tests, sometimes in harsh environments. An airborne campaign was recently carried out in the Arctic between Greenland, Iceland and Svalbard. A team endured temperatures of 30 degrees below zero, to test an airborne version of an imaging microwave radiometer.  It would support the development of a potential satellite mission for Europe’s Copernicus programme.

This is what Tania Casal Scientific Campaign Coordinator, ESA says:

The radiometer just senses  – it reads, basically – the sea ice at certain frequencies. And from that, from breaking it into several frequencies you can study the sea-ice signatures. From that you can infer what kind of sea ice you have, and also from that you can infer how old the sea ice is, for instance.
