Field Campaigns

The Aerosol Characterization from Polarimeter and Lidar (ACEPOL) airborne field campaign. The 2017 ACEPOL field campaign is a resource for remote sensing communities as they prepare for the next generation of spaceborne multi-angle polarimeter and lidar missions.

The seventh and final cruise for the project entitled "Impacts of Climate Variability on Primary Production and Carbon Distributions in the Middle Atlantic Bight and Gulf of Maine" (CLiVEC) was carried out on board the R/V Henry Bigelow from August 7-24, 2012. CLiVEC is a joint research project with researchers from Old Dominion University (ODU) and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

NASA HQ supported an oceanographic field campaign in Chesapeake Bay this summer to coincide with the NASA DISCOVER AQ (Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from COlumn and VERtically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality) EV-1 project managed by LARC and GSFC.

The Ocean Ecology Laboratory Field Program Support Group (FPSG; code 616) was recently invited to participate in a cruise of opportunity aboard the R/V Kilo Moana, a 186 foot, dual-hulled research vessel operated by the University of Hawaii for the National Science Foundation and stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii.
