SHIFT: Laboratory Foliar Chemical Analysis Results for Field Samples, CA, 2022


Usage54 downloads


This dataset holds laboratory foliar chemical analyses results for field samples collected during the 2022 NASA Surface Biology Geology (SBG) High Frequency Time series (SHIFT) campaign in Santa Barbara County, California, USA. Leaf samples were collected from plots within the Dangermond Preserve, Sedgwick Reserve, and Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve during the period of 2022-02-23 to 2022-09-27 and dried for later analysis. This project collected field data contemporaneously with weekly flights of the NASA's Airborne Visible-Infrared Imaging Spectrometer-Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG) facility instrument over the study areas. Sixteen chemical traits from two different lab analyses are provided. (a) Elemental analysis: foliar nitrogen (%), phosphorus (%), magnesium (%), potassium (%), calcium (%), sulfur (%), boron (ppm), iron (ppm), manganese (ppm), copper (ppm), zinc (ppm), aluminum (ppm), and sodium (ppm). (b) AnkomFiber analysis: foliar hemicellulose and bound protein (%), cellulose (%), and lignin (%). Related data packages contain additional plot-level characterization, biogeochemical, reflectance, and foliar data. These data are provided in comma separated values (CSV) format.
