Hyperspectral remote sensing measurements using the Airborne Prism Experiment (APEX) instrument onboard the DO228-212 /D-CFFU - DLR aircraft for the HYPPOS- HYdrodynamic control of Primary Producers in Optically Shallow fluvial lakes project (flight reference: apex_dlr-dornier_20140927_hyppos).

Data were collected over the Mantua, Northern Italy area.

The APEX (Airborne Prism EXperiment) instrument is an imaging spectrometer developed by a Swiss-Belgian consortium on behalf of ESA. It is operated jointly by VITO (Belgium) and RSL (Switzerland). Please see the link to the APEX website from this record for further details.
