SnowEx21 Senator Beck Basin and Grand Mesa, CO AVIRIS-NG Surface Spectral Reflectance, Version 1 (SNEX21_SSR)
Data set:
This is the most recent version of these data.
Version Summary
Initial release


This data set provides apparent surface spectral reflectance imagery which demonstrates snow albedo and snow optical property evolution across two distinct snow-covered environments in Colorado. Data collection occurred in the spring of 2021 as part of the NASA SnowEx mission. The two study sites (Senator Beck Basin and Grand Mesa) were chosen for their contrasting terrain and vegetation characteristics. Data collection occurred over three days (19 March, 1 April, and 29 April) to produce a time series data set across varying snow conditions.
