Paper Abstract

An overview of the ASAS data acquired in support of the 1989 field experiments is presented and data quality is discussed. The precision of the ASAS data is considered through the presentation of SNRs derived from both field and laboratory data. ASAS is an airborne, off-nadir pointing, imaging spectroradiometer that acquires digital image data for 29 visible and near-infrared spectral bands (465 to 871 nm) with a spectral resolution of 15 nm. Surfaces observed for the field experiments include volcanic surfaces and a playa within a sparsely vegetated semiarid ecosystem, grass canopies within a prairie ecosystem, and tree canopies within a northern forest ecosystem. It is shown that calibrated ASAS data are sufficiently exact for investigations of the directional distribution of radiation scattered from terrestrial surfaces.
