This project has now evolved in to the AMT4OceanSatFlux project, for further details see the new website here


  1. In collaboration with appropriate International Scientists and Agencies, design and plan a field campaign extension to the existing AMT 2016 experiment dedicated to the validation of S2A-MSI and S3A-OLCI, S3A-SLSTR and relevant Copernicus contributing mission products.
  2. Document all measurement procedures, processing methods, uncertainty budgets and demonstrate the FRM status for each measurement to be collected by AMT and used for validation activities during AMT4Sentinel.
  3. Prepare AMT4Sentinel FRM instrumentation for deployment (ie. Pre deployment calibrations, mounting brackets, installation etc.).
  4. Execute the AMT4Sentinel campaigns in 2016.
  5. Process and quality control3 all campaign data following documented FRM procedures to approve their use for satellite validation.
  6. Validate S3A OLCI, S3A SLSTR and S2A MSI and other Copernicus Contributing Mission data products using AMT4Sentinel FRM data.
  7. Deliver approved AMT4Sentinel data sets to ESA and the S2A and S3A Mission Performance Centres.
  8. Prepare and submit peer-reviewed journal articles.
  9. Develop communications and outreach material promoting Copernicus Sentinel satellites and the AMT4Sentinel activities
