WATER: Dataset of BRDF observations in the Yingke oasis and Huazhaizi desert steppe foci experimental areas Chinese Version


The dataset of BRDF observations was obtained in the Yingke oasis and Huazhaizi desert steppe foci experimental areas. Reflectance could be got based on R = (DN1/DN0)×R0, DN1 indicating DN of the item, R0 and DN0 the reflectance and DN of the grey board.

Synchronizing with WiDAS and OMIS-II, the ground observations on reflectance (-60°~60° at intervals of 10°) of maize and wheat were carried out with ASD (FOV: 25°) and the self-made observation platform (maximum height: 5m) on May 30, Jun. 9, 14, 20, 22, 26 and 30, and Jul. 1, 2008.

Raw data, recorded data and processed BRDF were archived in Excel format.
