Group: Summary

   This data set consists of apparent surface reflectance, subpixel snow-covered 
   area and grain size inferred from data acquired by the Airborne 
   Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS). The AVIRIS has a spectral 
   range of 400-2500 nm, a spectral resolution of 10 nm, instantaneous field of 
   view of 1 mrad, and a scan angle of 15 degrees. Sampling is scene based (~ 815 
   samples, 512 lines).

   The AVIRIS provides spectral resolution into hundreds of spectral bands versus 
   the seven multispectral bands flown on traditional Landsat imaging missions. 
   Through this large number of spectral bands, complex land ecosystems can be 
   imaged and accurately classified. 

   This data set is part of the NASA Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (CLPX). 
   The NASA CLPX is a multi-sensor, multi-scale experiment that focuses on 
   extending a local-scale understanding of water fluxes, storage, and 
   transformations to regional and global scales. Within a framework of nested 
   study areas in the central Rocky Mountains of the western United States, 
   ranging from 1-ha to 160,000 km2, intensive ground, airborne, and spaceborne 
   observations are collected. Data collection focuses on two seasons: 
   mid-winter, when conditions are generally frozen and dry, and early spring, a 
   transitional period when both frozen and thawed, dry and wet conditions are 
   widespread. Data are available via FTP. Users are requested to register with 
   NSIDC User Services to obtain access to the data. 

   PLEASE NOTE: These data have not been reviewed for quality. Known issues exist 
   in the processing of these data. Until this disclaimer has been removed, users 
   should send questions and comments about this data set to nsidc@nsidc.org. 
   NSIDC will forward these inquiries to the PI for resolution.
