During the next few weeks we’ll be writing a series of short articles or “blogs” bringing you news of the SMAPVEX12 field campaign taking place in Winnipeg, Canada this summer. Along the way we’ll be providing you with a view of what SMAPVEX12 is, when, where and why it’s happening, and we’ll introduce you to some of the people who are helping run the field campaign and are vital to making it work (both on the ground and in the air).

We’ll relate highlights of events as they take place every few days, digressing now and then to explain interesting details. Our hope is to provide plenty of photos to make the experience more real. Scientists taking part in the campaign may find time to share their experiences too. That way you’ll be guaranteed to get a more complete (and varied) set of impressions!

Since there won’t be enough space in these articles to explain everything you might like to know, there is an email address smap_science@jpl.nasa.gov where you can send questions. At the beginning of each article we’ll try and answer some of the questions received.
