BOREAS RSS-02 EXTRACTED REFLECTANCE FACTORS DERIVED FROM ASAS IMAGERY
Get Data

Summary:

Atmospherically-corrected bidirectional reflectance factor means for small homogeneous areas from several BOREAS sites were derived from multi-spectral, multi-angle imagery acquired by the Advanced Solidstate Array Spectroradiometer (ASAS) aboard the C-130 aircraft platform in 1994 and 1996.
