The reflectance spectra of the spring barley of field Brockley, near Chilbolton was collected as part of the Network for Calibration and Validation of Earth Observation data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. This dataset compromises the data which was collected on the 18th June. Measurements were also taken on the 15th at this location, the dataset record for which is available through linked documentation. Measurements were recorded using an ASD N4406 FieldSpec Pro, measurements having been taken at 5 flags within the field. After the exclusion of noisy bands, the spectra contains 1926 bands, covering the wavelengths 350-1354 nm, 1409-1811 nm and 1952-2496 nm. For further information on the processing of the raw data please see the dataset's metadata pdf in linked documentation. Please note that all raw spectra files collected during the NCAVEO campaign with ASD N4406 have incorrect dates. The laptop computer used with the ASD had the month accidently set to JULY instead of June. The DAY of month and TIME (UTC) are correct in all cases. All other files (FSF spreadsheets and Excel/ENVI summary outputs) are marked with the correct 15-18th June 2006 dates.

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.

File Format:
‘BK_060618_abs_10.pdf’ contains a plot of all 48 spectra with the noisy bands excluded. All the bands for the flag sites have been saved into an ENVI spectral library (‘BK_060618_abs_10’) and out from ENVI as a text file (‘BK_060618_abs_10.txt’).
