NASA ESPO - Casie - Mission schedule (August 2009)
This calendar sample was drawn on the base of figure illustrating the webpage "CASIE; Mission Schedule" from the NASA website. [espo.nasa.gov/casie/schedule.php]
"NASA is establishing a new science field campaign in 2009 to study sea ice roughness and break-up in the Arctic and high northern latitudes. This mission, known as CASIE-09 (Characterization of Arctic Sea Ice Experiment 2009), is being conducted under the auspices of the International Polar Year (IPY), a major international scientific research effort. The principal investigator, Dr. James Maslanik ( University of Colorado, Boulder) was awarded a competitively selected grant by the NASA Science Mission Directorate, under the 2006 Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES).
This mission will combine the use of a variety of remote sensing methods, including satellite observations and uninhabited aerial vehicles, to provide fundamental new insights into ice roughness on the scale of meters to tens of meters in the context of larger-scale environmental forcing. In addition, the mission offers a technological and operational testbed to demonstrate the value of autonomous vehicles for long-range, long-duration remote sensing science." [espo.nasa.gov/casie/]
