SVALEX 2006 has been conducted together with the Alfred-Wegner Institute (AWI) from Potsdam and Bremerhaven and the Microwaves and Radar Institute of the German Aerospace Center.
In April 2005 several measurement fights over sea ice and land ice have been conducted from Longyerbyen, Svalbard with the AWI aircraft POLAR2 and the DLR aircraft Do228. The objective was to deliver answers of the interconnection between Atmosphere – Ice-Ocean in order to answer question to the impact of climate change of troposphere aerosols and characterisation of orientation in ice volumes.
The campaign has been conducted during April 2005 (05.04.2005 – 23.04.2005). For this, different instruments have been used, which were installed at the two aircrafts. The flights have been conducted together over the same test area. It is expected to increase the understanding of ice procedure and structure using different instruments for their analysis.
