Project: Prototype Validation Exercise (PROVE)Project: Prototype Validation Exercise (PROVE)
The Prototype Validation Exercise (PROVE) consists of two mini-field campaigns involving investigators from three different NASA Earth Observing System (EOS) instrument teams. MODIS (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectrometer), MISR (Multi-angle Imaging Spectro Radiometer), and ASTER (Advanced Space-borne Thermal Emission and Reflectance Radiometer) coordinate field, aircraft, and satellite measurements to maximize data collection and conduct cross comparisons. The 1997 campaigns were conducted in a grassland-shrub site on the Jornada Experimental Range near Las Cruces, New Mexico, and in a deciduous forest on the Walker Branch Watershed site near Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Project information and photos are available from the PROVE Web page http://pratmos.gsfc.nasa.gov/~justice/modland/valid/prove/grass/prove.html, an inventory of data collection is maintained by the ORNL DAAC, and controlled access is provided to PROVE data maintained by the ORNL DAAC. Prototype Validation Exercise (PROVE) has available 1 companion files.
Data Set: PROVE Land Cover and Leaf Area of Jornada Experimental Range, New Mexico, 1997Data Set: PROVE Land Cover and Leaf Area of Jornada Experimental Range, New Mexico, 1997
Field measurement of shrubland ecological properties is important for both site monitoring and validation of remote-sensing information. During the PROVE exercise on May 20-30, 1997, we calculated plot-level plant area index, leaf area index, total fractional cover, and green fractional cover.
