Data Set Overview
|Data set||PROVE Surface albedo of Jornada Experimental Range, New Mexico, 1997|
|Project||Prototype Validation Exercise (PROVE)|
The objective of this study was to determine the spatial variations in field measurements of broadband albedo as related to the ground cover and under a range of solar conditions during the Prototype Validation Exercise (PROVE) at the Jornada Experimental Range in New Mexico on May 20-30, 1997.

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 1 available companion files.
