Data On Earth’s Ecosystems Collected By NASA Aircraft
AVIRIS and MASTER are collecting data under cloud-free daylight conditions during the spring, summer and fall of 2013 and 2014 over six diverse areas of California from San Francisco to near the Mexican border.
JPL scientist Robert Green is leading the effort to use imaging spectroscopy to capture a unique set of reflected wavelengths to learn about Earth's ecosystems, how they function and vary from season to season.
The aircraft flew the missions from NASA's Dryden Aircraft Operations Facility in Palmdale, Calif.
