Paper Abstract

The Crau-Camargue airborne experiment took place between the 10th and the 14th of July 1995 on the south coast of France. The purpose of the experiment was to measure microwave for a number of arid and verdant land types as found in the region. The UK meteorological C-130 aircraft participated, taking measurements with its two microwave radiometers, MARSS and Deimos, and with a multi-channel infra-red (Ir) radiometer, SAFIRE. Results are presented on the microwave emissivities spectra of verdant and arid land types.
