Western Diversity Time Series
Dates: 17 September - 15 October, 2020
Location: California
Principal Investigators: Hook / Green (JPL)
Aircraft: NASA 809 ER-2 (Armstrong Flight Research Center)
Additional Sensors: PICARD / AVIRIS / HyTES
Objective: The Western Diversity Time Series (formerly HyspIRI) will observe California’s ecosystems and provide critical information on natural disasters such as volcanoes, wildfires, and drought. It will provide a benchmark on the state of the ecosystems against which future changes can be assessed, as the instruments will be capable of identifying vegetation type and health. The WDTS Airborne Campaign is a multi-year effort to collect seasonal VIS-SWIR and TIR airborne scanner data using both AVIRIS and MASTER remote sensing instruments aboard the ER-2 high-altitude platform.
