Polarization measurements with the hyperspectral and polarized imaging system specMACS during the HALO-(AC)3 field campaign


During the HALO-(AC)3 campaign, the hyperspectral and polarized imaging system specMACS was integrated into the German research aircraft HALO. This dataset contains videos with measurements of the two polarization resolving cameras of specMACS which measure the two-dimensional distribution of the I, Q, and U components of the Stokes vector at red, green, and blue color channels with an acquisition rate of 8Hz. Both cameras are operated in a nadir looking perspective and have a combined field of view of 91 x 117 degree in along and across track direction. The videos include RGB images as well as images of the degree of linear polarization derived from the measurements.
