CLAMS Data and Information

The Chesapeake Lighthouse and Aircraft Measurements for Satellites (CLAMS) field campaign was conducted from NASA Wallops Flight Facility covering the middle Atlantic eastern seaboard from July 10 - August 3, 2001. CLAMS is an experiment designed to validate and improve EOS Terra satellite data products derived from three sensors: CERES, MISR, and MODIS.
