Southampton, UK - Port Stanley, Falkland Islands
AMT27 set sail from Immingham on 23rd September 2017 aboard the RRS Discovery and arrived in the Falklands on 5th November 2017.
Once again this years cruise benefited from the addition of funding from the European Space Agency for the AMT4SentinelFRM project. This provided a unique opportunity to obtain high quality fiducial reference measurements for the validation of Sentinel products in a wide range of Atlantic locations.
You can read blogs from the cruise on the ESA Campaigns blog and from the scientists from the Naturalis Biodiversity Center.
