Airborne remote sensing data collections at NEONs D20 PUUM site in FY20

Project: Research project

Project Details


To support the NEON project, the Airborne Operations Platform (AOP) collects annual remote sensing data over NEON field sites using sensors mounted on a Twin Otter aircraft. The AOP includes:
- A hyperspectral imaging spectrometer
- A full waveform and discrete return LiDAR
- A high-resolution Red, Blue, Green (RGB) camera
Data collected from the AOP are used to generate a collection of data products to enable a robust time series of observations of landscape-scale patterns and change to vegetation type, and structure and condition, canopy chemistry and topography. The requirements detailed here for conducting an airborne remote sensing acquisition at PUUM will support the objectives of the NEON observatory, and allow consistency in data products delivered by the NEON AOP at other observatory sites. This statement of work is organized into four sections; 1) description of the PUUM site, 2) flight requirements, 3) sensor requirements, 4) data delivery requirements.
