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.
