UAVSAR – Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar

Thursday, June 22, 2017

The L-band radar aboard the AFRC C-20A aircraft is on the ABoVE deployment in Fairbanks, AK to survey permafrost and boreal forest sites in Northern Canada and Alaska.  So far we have flown 7 of the 8 planned science flights over sites in Northwest Territories of Canada and throughout Alaska including Bonanza Creek, Denali, Katmai, and Lake Clark National Parks, Yukon Delta, Seward Peninsula, and Delta Junction.  On Wednesday, we will be imaging permafrost sites in North Slope, AK.
