BOREAS RSS-18 Level 1b AVIRIS At-Sensor Radiance Imagery

Data Set Overview

Data setBOREAS RSS-18 Level 1b AVIRIS At-Sensor Radiance Imagery
Release date1999-11-16
ProjectBoreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study
Time Period1994-04-19 to 1996-08-14


Data were acquired for BOREAS with NASA's Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS). This optical sensor measures images that consist of spectra from 400 to 2500 nm at 10 nm sampling. These spectra are acquired as images with 20 meter spatial resolution, 11 km swath width and up to 800 km length. The measurements are spectrally, radiometrically, geometrically calibrated.

Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study: The Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study was a large-scale international interdisciplinary experiment in the boreal forests of central Canada. Its focus was improving our understanding of the exchanges of radiative energy, sensible heat, water, CO2 and trace gases between the boreal forest and the lower atmosphere. A primary objective of BOREAS was to collect the data needed to improve computer simulation models of the important processes controlling these exchanges so that scientists can anticipate the effects of global change, principally altered temperature and precipitation patterns, on the biome.
