CREST Participates NASA SMAP Field Campaign (SMAPVEX19)

Dr. Lakhankar and CREST team participating in NASA’s Soil Moisture Active Passive Validation Experiment 2019 (SMAPVEX19) conducted at Worcester County Massachusetts and Duchess County, New York.  SMAPVEX19 builds upon a long history of NASA’s satellite validation experiments, which include satellite remote sensing, an airborne campaign, a temporary in situ network deployment and intensive observation periods with physical visitation and sampling.  NOAA-CREST L-band (1.45 GHz) dual polarization microwave radiometer deployed for measuring soil and canopy brightness temperature. These field campaigns have application in a broad range of scientific areas, focusing on technology development and demonstration, validating satellite-based geophysical products and providing educational experiences for students.
