Campaigns - GPS SI
The GPS-SI campaign was deployed in Greenland as a first part of ESA funded project GPS-SIDS (Sea Ice and Dry Snow), whose objective was to investigate the viability of using reflected GPS signals to study sea-ice and dry snow properties from space. For that purpose, the goal of this campaign was to obtain relatively long term data sets monitoring the complete process of formation, evolution and melting of sea-ice from a fixed platform placed at Godhavn (Disko Bay). After inferring several sea-ice properties such as thickness, roughness and permittivity changes, the results should be extrapolated to a spaceborne platform. The GNSS-R instruments employed were the ICE/IEEC-CSIC's GOLD-RTR and the GFZ's GORS.
