Data collection status

This page describes the status of upcoming flights in the current (2008) flying season.

Note: the actual flight date is dependent on operational restrictions and the presence of suitable weather conditions. All data are collected on a "best endeavours" basis.

Following the fitting of a loaned engine the NERC ARSF aircraft has resumed support for UK remote sensing. During the first two weeks in May data collection time will be shared between the support of UK remote sensing and participation in an International experiment in support of science (EUCAARI - NL08/01). The Cambridge LiDAR should be available in the NERC aircraft at the end of May. Please contact Gary Llewellyn (Science / operations coordinator) if you have any questions or concerns: gaew@… (01865 374 391)
