AMT26

AMT26 set sail from Immingham on 20th September 2016 aboard the British Antarctic Survey vessel the RRS James Clark Ross and arrived in Stanley, Falkland Islands on 4th November 2016.
 

This years cruise had the addition of funding from the European Space Agency for the AMT4SentinelFRM project. This will provide a unique opportunity to obtain high quality fiducial reference measurements for the validation of Sentinel products in a wide range of Atlantic locations.
