Mission: 
SLAP LIAISE 2021
Mission Location: 
Ebro Basin, Spain
Mission Summary: 

Friday, 16 July was the second IOP (intensive observation) day of the two-week LIAISE special observation period (SOP). SLAP was flown at our medium-altitude mapping lines, in order to map a 20 km x 20 km area coincident with the LIAISE ground truth sites. At this altitude, SLAP can operate in passive (radiometer) and active (scatterometer) modes, though the scatterometer was not used during this flight due to concerns of potential interference with the ground-based radar used by LIAISE for atmospheric profiling.
