Flight: 99-006-13
Date: September 28, 1999
Aircraft: DOE B-200 Kingair
Deployment: B200 Autumn 1999
Flight Location: San Pedro River Basin, AZ
Principal Investigator: Kahle (JPL)
Additional Sensors: RC-30 (CIR)
Objective: Continue to provide high spatial and spectral resolution data sets for support of the Semi-Arid Land Surface Atmosphere (SALSA) program. Ground measurments include micrometeorological, areal measurments for purposes of estimating the spatial variation of the surface sensible and latent heat flux densities pertinent to semi-arid rangelands.

Data Evaluation
In many flights during the 99-006 deployment, a minor pixel offset occured in channels 20-22. In addition, some flights (for example 99-006-08 and 99-006-14) contain banding in channel 22. This banding was a result of the analog offset in channel 22 being fixed at a value of 1024, meaning the digital to analog converter did not move through the entire signal range.
