  • Data from the Synthetic Aperture Radar and Hyperspectral Airborne campaign (SHAC) run by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the British National Space Centre (BNSC). The campaign intended to provide support for industrial and academic research into earth resource and environmental monitoring. The campaign was managed by NRSC- now Infoterra. Fourteen different locations were flown in May and June 2000 in the campaign (see Fig.1), logistical constraints requiring two aircraft be used to fly the two instruments individually. The campaign involved a large number of researchers from NERC-EPFS and CEH, BAE Systems and InfoTerra on the ground collecting information vital to making best use of the airborne data: simultaneous spectral, sun photometer and GPS measurements and the installation by DERA, now QinetiQ, of corner reflectors to gain geo-coding of the E-SAR data. The outcome was previously unavailable, state-of the art, airborne data of the UK, which informed 11 research projects. The following list details the various SHAC2000 projects flown ScotSHAC campaign in Glen Affric Woodhouse, I., University of Edinburgh Fractional ground cover estimation from hyperspectral radiometry.

  • In situ atmospheric measurements using the SAFIRE ATR42 Core Instrument suite onboard the ATR42 - SAFIRE aircraft for the i-WAKE2- island-induced WAKE dynamics (I-WAKE2) project (flight reference: as42). Data were collected over the Madeira, Portugal area.

  • The Icelandic Volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, started erupting on 14th April 2010. The volcanic ash cloud produced covered much of Northern Europe for several weeks causing extensive disruption to air travel. The UK and European atmospheric communities had many instruments - both airborne and ground-based, remote sensing and in-situ - taking measurements of the ash cloud throughout this period. This dataset contains meteorology and chemistry measurements from the NERC Airborne Research and Survey Facilitiy's (ARSF) DO228-101 D-CALM Aircraft.

  • In situ atmospheric measurements using the SAFIRE ATR42 Core Instrument suite onboard the ATR42 - SAFIRE aircraft for the i-WAKE2- island-induced WAKE dynamics (I-WAKE2) project (flight reference: as47). Data were collected over the Madeira, Portugal area.

  • In situ atmospheric measurements using the SAFIRE ATR42 Core Instrument suite onboard the ATR42 - SAFIRE aircraft for the TETRAD- Training & Education for Turbulence Research project (flight reference: as54). Data were collected over the Toulon-Hyeres Airport (South of France) area.

  • Hyperspectral remote sensing measurements using the ARSF Rollei Digital Camera and ARSF Optech Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper 3033 LIDAR instruments onboard the NERC ARSF Dornier Do228-101 D-CALM Aircraft for the AIMWETLAB - Aerial imaging of the wetlands of Lake Balaton and the Kis-Balaton (EUFAR10_01) project (flight reference: 2010_234e). Data were collected over the Balaton Peninsula, Hungary area.

  • Hyperspectral remote sensing measurements using the INTA Airborne Hyperspectral Scanner and INTA Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager 1500i instruments onboard the CASA 212 RS - INTA aircraft for the EDOCROS - Early detection of crop water and nutritional stress by remotely sensed indicators project (flight reference: intacasa-rs_20100719_edocros_D3). Data were collected over the Piacenza, Italy area.

  • Hyperspectral remote sensing measurements using the INTA Airborne Hyperspectral Scanner and INTA Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager 1500i instruments onboard the CASA 212 RS - INTA aircraft for the HyperForest - Advanced airborne hyperspectral remote sensing to support forest management (HYPERFOREST) project (flight reference: intacasa-rs_20100831_hyperforest). Data were collected over the Belgium area.

  • Hyperspectral remote sensing measurements using the Airborne Prism Experiment (APEX) instrument onboard the DO228-212 /D-CFFU - DLR aircraft for the HyMountEcos- Hyperspectral Remote Sensing for Mountain Ecosystems (HYMOUNTECOS) project (flight reference: apex_dlr-dornier_20120910_hymountecos_hyme2). Data were collected over the Giant Mountains (Karkonosze/Krkonose) National Park. Border of the Czech Republic and Poland area. The APEX (Airborne Prism EXperiment) instrument is an imaging spectrometer developed by a Swiss-Belgian consortium on behalf of ESA. It is operated jointly by VITO (Belgium) and RSL (Switzerland). Please see the link to the APEX website from this record for further details.

  • Hyperspectral remote sensing measurements using the ARSF Optech Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper 3033 LIDAR, ARSF Rollei Digital Camera, ARSF Specim AISA Eagle and ARSF Specim AISA Hawk instruments onboard the NERC ARSF Dornier Do228-101 D-CALM Aircraft for the A.NEW - Airborne observations of Nonlinear Evolution of internal Waves generated by internal (tidal) beams (EUFAR10_03) project (flight reference: 2010_196). Data were collected over the Lisbon, Portugal area.
