SummaryThe proposed TerraSAR-X acquisitions are planned to coincide with field measurement activities related to the CoReH2O Phase A mission studies in Finland, and Canada. In these activities, the acquisition of simultaneous active X- and Ku-band and passive L-, X-, K-, Ka- and W-band observations mainly from tower based instruments, together with extensive in situ observations of snowpack, ground and atmospheric characteristics enable the collection of a unique dataset required by other CoReH2O studies related to algorithm development and studies on the synergistic use of active and passive data. The field measurements are currently ongoing (since November 2009) and are scheduled to last until June 2011 in Finland, and till March 2011 in Canada.
