Paper Abstract

Airborne laboratories are used for the estimation of the environmental state during several tens of years. However, the results obtained with such labs are incomplete, it follows from the analysis made. If the aircraft equipped with contact means, they provide information only on one or two ingredients, if remote systems are installed on it, then it is possible to acquire information on vertical profiles or spectral response of the underlying surface. Experience accumulated in IAO SB RAS during airborne sounding of cities and areas shows that if all measurement systems are combined into an integrated complex, then information on environmental state exhibits a new quality. At the same time some conditions should be achieved. First of all, the airborne laboratory should be equipped with contact as well as with remote devices which duplicate measurement of the same parameters. This allows to obtain more reliable data s well as to calibrate remote devices using contact data. Second, all measurement instruments should be combined into a united information system to make synchronous measurements. In this case data from different instruments complement each other. Third, all three media, i.e. soil, water, and air should be controlled by means of remote and contact means, that will essentially facilitate data interpretation.
