The GLORI Project
GLORI (GLObal navigation satellite system reflectometry Instrument) is an airborne polarimetric GNSS-R instrument.
The main geophysical land surface parameters of interest to be investigated are:
- Soil moisture
- Vegetation water content
- forest biomass
- inland water body altimetry.
The instrument is installed as a permanent payload on the French ATR-42 research aircraft,
Both direct and reflected LHCP and RHCP GNSS signals are collected simultaneously during flights.
