This dataset consists of the reflectance spectra which was collected on the 16th-17th June 2006 from three artificial targets deployed 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 Experiment. The reflectance data were acquired using an ASD FieldSpec Pro fitted with a contact probe. For further details on each of the data files please see the dataset's metadata document in linked documentation.
