Short Name:

ABoVE: Hyperspectral Imagery from AVIRIS-NG, Alaskan and Canadian Arctic, 2017-2019

This dataset provides Level 1 radiance and Level 2 surface reflectance measured by the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer-Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG) instrument during flights over the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) domain between June and August 2017, July and August 2018 and again in July and August 2019. AVIRIS-NG measures reflected radiance at 5-nanometer (nm) intervals in the visible to shortwave infrared spectral range between 380 and 2510 nm. Measurements are radiometrically and geometrically calibrated and provided at approximately 5-meter spatial resolution. The data include 556 flight lines covering areas of interest to the ABoVE campaign over much of Alaska and western Canada. These data will allow researchers to characterize ecosystem structure and function near the height of the growing season. This dataset represents one part of a multisensor airborne sampling campaign conducted by eleven different aircraft teams for ABoVE.
