Abstract

Reflectance data were acquired from a fixed tripod near the north-east corner of a concrete calibration site at the Chilbolton Facility for Atmospheric and Radio Research (CFARR), as part of the Network for Calibration and Validation of Earth Observation data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. The data was collected on the 17th June 2006 using a single beam GER3700 spectroradiometer. The nominal field-of view of the instrument was 3°, and it was mounted 1 metre above the surface.

Access to these data is available to any registered CEDA user. Please Login or Register for an account to gain access.
Use of these data is covered by the following licence: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/3/. When using these data you must cite them correctly using the citation given on the CEDA Data Catalogue record.
Data lineage:

These data were provided to NEODC by university of Southampton, who carried out work to convert formats to NASA-Ames, and write metadata documents. The metadata documents describing the processing are archived alongside the data as PDF files.

Data Quality:
Mostly unknown, but some quality statements are provided in metadata files archived alongside the data.
File Format:
The calibrated reflectance spectra are in a NASA Ames format file and a plot of all the spectra over the visible and near IR regions is in PNG format. Photographs of the GER3700 and the calibration site are also included as JPG files.
