Summary

To support research on remote sensing of rivers, several types of remotely sensed data and various field measurements were acquired from a reach of the upper Sacramento River in northern California, September 11 - October 18, 2017. These data sets also facilitate efforts to characterize in-stream habitat for salmon and monitor geomorphic change along the Sacramento River. This parent data release includes links to child pages for the following data sets: 1) airborne hyperspectral image data acquired from a conventional, manned, fixed-wing aircraft; 2) hyperspectral image data acquired from an umanned aerial system (UAS); 3) multispectral image data acquired from a satellite; 4) bathymetric LiDAR acquired from a manned aircraft; [...]

Purpose

The various data sets comprising this data release were used to develop improved methods of estimating water depth from different types of remotely sensed data. This type of bathymetric information can be used to characterize river morphology and in-stream habitat and could be incorporated into techniques for measuring river discharge from remotely sensed data.
