RIVET from the air

Airborne operations are underway at RIVET. Below are some photographs of the inlet from the APL-UW test flight on Monday (17:00 – 18:00 local time). Onboard the Cessna 172, we have a dual-beam along-track interferometric synthetic aperture radar, two infrared cameras, and a visible wavelength camera. We will be posting imagery from these sensors as soon as it is available.
