Summary

Hyperspectral image data and various field measurements were acquired from a reach of the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park, WY, August 19-24, 2015, to support research on remote sensing of rivers. This parent data release includes links to child pages for the following data sets: 1) hyperspectral image data; 2) ground-based depth measurements obtained by wading and with with an acoustic Doppler current profiler; 3) reflectance spectra acquired from a raft; and 4) an irradiance profile used to characterize attenuation of light by the water column. Please refer to the individual child pages for further detail about each data set. Overall, these data were used to develop improved methods of estimating water depth from remotely [...]

Purpose

The various data sets comprising this data release were used to develop improved methods of estimating water depth from passive optical image data or field spectra. This type of bathymetric information could be incorporated into techniques for measuring river discharge from remotely sensed data.
