Field spectroscopy — the study of the interrelationships between the spectral characteristics of objects and their biophysical attributes in the field environment.
Laboratory-quality in situ field measurements with equivalent illumination and viewing geometry for accurate correlation to satellite and aircraft sensor data.
Collection of visible, near infrared, and short-wave infrared images for the detection, identification, and quantification of surface materials, biological, and chemical processes for research and analysis in numerous environmental and military applications.
Accurately measure soil nutrients and perform other crops and soils research of vegetation and soil properties with ASD FieldSpec spectroradiometers.
The study of snow and ice characteristics to better understanding the Earth-atmosphere radiation balance and correlations between snow reflectance and grain shape and size, hardness index, density, liquid water content, and snow temperature.
The ability to accurately perform reflectance and radiometric measurements of vegetation and soil in the field is critical to understanding light utilization and partitioning within a plant community.
The collection of spectra over areas that are too large or inaccessible for ground-based measurement.
Observations of direct, diffuse, and total spectral solar irradiance, as well as sky and cloud radiance, are essential for atmospheric research in many climate and ecosystem energy balance studies.
Global change occurs on a daily basis and data collected through remote sensing can be used effectively in climate change studies.
Studies of the composition, material, structure, processes, and history of the earth, often for the detection of minerals and new energy resources.
Above water reflected radiance to infer water leaving radiance without the need for in-water measurement for interpretation and field validation of satellite imagery and more
The measurement of absolute radiometric quantities in narrow bands of wavelength for the calibration of a variety of spectral radiance and irradiance measurements.
