Overview

These digital surface model (DSM) data consist of surface elevations derived from source lidar measurements collected in August 2022 in the vicinity of Millbrook, NY during the SMAPVEX19-22 campaign. The location was selected due to its forested land cover, as SMAPVEX19-22 aims to validate satellite derived soil moisture estimates in forested areas. The August collection period was selected to characterize ‘leaf-on’ conditions. DSM data represents the highest elevation of features on the Earth’s surface, which may include bare-earth, vegetation, and human-made objects.
