What is the data?

Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) delivers calibrated images of the upwelling spectral radiance in 224 bands with wavelengths between 400 and 2500 nm. AVIRIS has been flown on four aircraft platforms: NASA’s ER-2 jet, Twin Otter International’s turboprop, Scaled Composites’ Proteus, and NASA’s WB-57. The ER-2 flies at approximately 20 km above sea level, at about 730 km/hr. The Twin Otter aircraft flies at 4km above ground level at 130km/hr. AVIRIS has flown North America, Europe, portions of South America, and Argentina. AVIRIS has flown all across the US, plus Canada and Europe. The main objective of the AVIRIS project is to identify, measure, and monitor constituents of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere based on molecular absorption and particle scattering signatures. Research with AVIRIS data is predominantly focused on understanding processes related to the global environment and climate change.
