National Airborne Field Experiment - Trial Campaign
Instrument and sampling strategies for NAFE were tested during a 2 weeks long trial campaign in a small monitored area, approximately 200km North-East of Adelaide,
South Australia. The objective of the test was mainly to set up the complex software component of the PLMR radiometer and to
investigate a number of issues related to the use of PLMR onboard the SERA aircraft, such as instrument attitude when mounted on the aircraft, calibration
procedures and aircraft related sources of noise for the radiometer. The airborne and ground sampling strategies proposed for NAFE were also tested.
