WATER: Dateset of spectral reflectance measurements in the A'rou foci experimental area Chinese Version

The dataset of spectral reflectance measurements was obtained in the A'rou foci experimental area on Mar. 12, 2008. The land was covered with snow 10cm deep. Observed objects included snow, sandstone, grass and ice. The data were archived in the ASCII format, with the first five rows as the file header and the following two columns as wavelength (nm) and reflectance (percentage) respectively, and can be opened by .txt or wordpad. Raw data were binary files direct from ASD (by ViewSpecPro).
