A view of Greenland from the DLR aircraft during the campaign to demonstrate the ADM-Aeolus mission's lidar technology. This region was chosen because of the opportunity to calibrate the lidar instrument over the large Greenland ice sheet and for the strong 'katabatic' winds that flow from the cold high plateau down the steep mountain sides and out over the ocean.
