Mission: 
SLAP LIAISE 2021
Mission Summary: 

Saturday, 17 July was the third IOP (intensive observation) day of the two-week LIAISE special observation period (SOP). SLAP was flown at our low-altitude mapping lines, 17 km long spaced 350 m apart, to maximize spatial resolution. At this altitude, SLAP can only operate in the passive (radiometer) mode, though the last line was flown at 3,500 ft in order to see whether our scatterometer transmissions interfered with the ground-based radar used by LIAISE for atmospheric profiling.
