Group: Summary

   This data set presents more than 400 sub-canopy digital thermograms collected 
   at the Fraser Experimental Forest (Fraser, Colorado, USA) using an Infrared 
   Solutions IR SnapShot™ thermoelectric thermal infrared (IR) imaging 
   radiometer that was cold-weather modified. To view the data it is necessary to 
   have the Infrared Solutions SnapView™ software, which is available from 
   Infrared Solutions.

   The NASA Cold Land Processes Field Experiment (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.
