Estimation of chlorophyll a from time series measurements of high spectral resolution reflectance in an eutrophic lake
The U.S. Geological Survey collected field spectra collected from three rivers in Alaska September 19–21, 2016, to support research on remote sensing of river discharge. Reflectance measurements were made from bridges across the Chena River, Salcha River, and Montana Creek using an Analytical Spectral Devices FieldSpec3 spectroradiometer operated in reflectance mode. The original *.asd files are provided in this data release. This data release supports the following article: Legleiter, C.J., Kinzel, P.J., and Nelson, J.M., 2017, Remote measurement of river discharge using thermal particle image velocimetry (PIV) and various sources of bathymetric information: Journal of Hydrology, v. 554, p. 490-506, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2017.09.004.
Hyperspectral image data and field measurements used for bathymetric mapping of the Deschutes River near Bend, OR
The U.S. Geological Survey acquired hyperspectral image data and various field measurements from a reach of the Deschutes River near Bend, OR, between Benham Falls and Dillon Falls July 26-29, 2016, to support research on remote sensing of river discharge. This parent data release includes links to child pages for the following data sets: 1) hyperspectral image data; 2) ground-based bathymetric survey data obtained with a multi-beam echo sounder; 3) reflectance spectra and depth measurements 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...
Multispectral bidirectional reflectance of northern forest canopies with the Advanced Solid-State Array Spectroradiometer (ASAS)
Hyperspectral and RGB images acquired during an experiment conducted at the USGS Columbia Environmental Research Center, Columbia, MO, on April 2, 2019
This child data release includes hyperspectral and RGB images acquired from an Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) during an experiment performed at the USGS Columbia Environmental Research Center, near Columbia, Missouri, on April 2, 2019. The purpose of the experiment was to assess the feasibility of inferring concentrations of a visible dye (Rhodamine WT) tracer from various types of remotely sensed data in water with varying levels of turbidity. Whereas previous research on remote sensing of tracer dye concentrations has focused on clear-flowing streams, the Missouri River is much more turbid and the reflectance signal associated with the sediment-laden water could obscure that related to the presence and amount...
Estimating crop water deficit using the relation between surface-air temperature and spectral vegetation index
2005 Land Cover of North America at 250 meters - National Geospatial Data Asset (NGDA) Land Use Land Cover
This data set replaces the 2010 edition (Edition 1.0) of the 2005 Land Cover of North America. Following the release of the first 2005 land cover data, several errors were identified in the data, including both errors in labeling and misinterpretation of thematic classes. To correct the labeling errors, each country focused on its national territory and corrected the errors which it considered most critical or misleading. For the continental data sets (including surrounding water fringe) 17440830 pixels (4.33% of the area) changed in the update. The following national counts exclude the water fringe: Canada, 10223412 pixels changed (6.44%); Mexico, 141142 pixels changed (0.45%), and U.S., 6878656 pixels changed...
