Abstract

An area of asphalt, approximately 3m by 3m in size, within the CFARR perimeter was used as a persistent validation target and frequent reflectance measurements made as part of the (Network for Calibration and Validation of EO data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. The centre British National Grid co-ordinates of this validation target, which can be distinguished in the CASI images, are (BNG Easting, BNG Northing) 439335.00, 138586.00. A trolley-mounted GER1500 dual field-of-view spectroradiometer was used to measure the HCRF of the asphalt validation target between 10:54 and 11:38 GMT on the 17th June.
