Group: Summary

   This data set consists of land surface brightness temperatures 
   (TBs) derived from Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) and Landsat 7 
   Enhanced Thematic Mapper+ (ETM+) thermal bands. The Landsat data coincided 
   with the SMEX02 campaign and were acquired once per day on 23 June, 1 July, 8 
   July, 16 July, and 17 July 2002 over the Walnut Creek watershed, Iowa, USA. 
   The data collectively cover 41.69° N to 42.73° N and 93.16° W to 
   93.84° N. Landsat 7 ETM+ data have 60 m spatial resolution. Landsat 5 TM 
   data have 30 m spatial resolution. The investigators used the MODTRAN 4.1 
   radiative transfer model to correct the original Level-1G radiances for 
   atmospheric effects; then they converted radiances to TBs. Data are unsigned 
   integer, band-interleaved-by-line (BIL), binary values, scaled by 100. Data 
   are available via FTP.

   These data were collected as part of a validation study for the Advanced 
   Microwave Scanning Radiometer - Earth Observing System (AMSR-E). AMSR-E is a 
   mission instrument launched aboard NASA's Aqua Satellite on 04 May 2002. 
   AMSR-E validation studies linked to SMEX are designed to evaluate the accuracy 
   of AMSR-E soil moisture data. Specific validation objectives include assessing 
   and refining soil moisture algorithm performance; verifying soil moisture 
   estimation accuracy; investigating the effects of vegetation, surface 
   temperature, topography, and soil texture on soil moisture accuracy; and 
   determining the regions that are useful for AMSR-E soil moisture measurements.
