WATER: Envisat MERIS dataset

The medium resolution imaging spectrometer (MERIS) is a sensor mounted on the ENVISAT satellite of the European Space Agency. It has 15 spectral segments and scans the earth's surface by push sweep method. The incident angle of the point below the star is 68.5 degrees and the width is 1150km. At present, there are 56 ENVISAT MERIS data in Heihe River Basin. Acquisition time: 2008-05-01, 2008-05-02, 2008-05-03, 2008-05-05, 2008-05-07, 2008-05-08, 2008-05-11, 2008-05-14, 2008-05-17 (2 scenes), 2008-05-20 (2 scenes), 2008-05-21 (2 scenes), 2008-05-23 (2 scenes), 2008-05-24, 2008-05-30, 2008-05-31, 2008-06-01, 2008-06-02, 2008-06-05, 2008-06-06, 2008-06-09, 2008-06-12, 2008-06-15, 2008-06-18, 2008-06-21, 2008-06-22, 2008-06-24 (2 scenes), 2008-06-25, 2008-06-27, 2008-06-30, 2008-07-01, 2008-07-02, 2008-07-04, 2008-07-07, 2008-07-10, 2008-07-11, 2008-07-13 (2 scenes), 2008-07-13, 2008-07-16, 2008-07-17, 2008-07-20, 2008-07-23 (2 scenes), 2008-07-26 (2 scenes), 2008-07-27, 2008-07-29, 2008-07-30, 2008-08-01, 2008-08-02. The product level is L1B without geometric correction. The ENVISAT MERIS remote sensing data set of Heihe integrated remote sensing joint experiment was obtained through the China EU "dragon plan" project (Project No.: 5322) (see the data use statement for details).



This dataset includes seven scenes; two scenes cover the Dayekou catchment on (yy-mm-dd) 2012-08-19 and 2012-08-28, one scene covers the airport desert experimental site on 2012-06-29, three scenes cover the Daman foci experimental area on 2012-06-21, 2012-07-10 and 2012-08-27, and one scene covers the natural oasis eco-hydrology experimental area in the lower reaches of the Heihe River Basin. The data were all acquired around 9:00 (BJT) of full swath mode with data product of Level 1A. PROBA CHRIS dataset was acquired through the European Space Agency (ESA)-Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST) Cooperative Dragon 2 (project ID: 5322) and Dragon 3 (project ID: 10649) Programme.


HiWATER: Dataset of ASTER fractional vegetation cover in the crop land experimental area in the middle of Heihe River Basin form May to Sep, 2012

This data is the ASTER fractional vegetation cover in a growth cycle observed in the Yingke Oasis Crop land. Data observations began on May 30, 2012 and ended on September 12. Original data: 1.15m resolution L1B reflectivity product of ASTER 2.Vegetation coverage data set of the artificial oasis experimental area in the middle reaches Data processing: 1.Preprocessing of ASTER reflectance products to obtain ASTER NDVI; 2.Through the NDVI-FVC nonlinear transformation form, the ASTER NDVI and the ground measured FVC are used to obtain the conversion coefficients of NDVI to FVC at different ASTER scales. 3.Apply this coefficient to the ASTER image to obtain a vegetation coverage of 15m resolution; 4.Aggregate 15m resolution ASTER FVC to get 1km ASTER FVC product


HiWATER: QuickBird dataset on July. 25, 2012

This dataset includes one scene acquired on (yy-mm-dd) 2012-07-25, covering the natural oasis eco-hydrology experimental area in the lower reaches of the Heihe River Basin. This datum contains panchromatic and multi-spectral bands, with spatial resolution of 0.6 m and 2.4 m, respectively. The data product level of this image is Level 2A. QuickBird dataset was acquired through purchase.


HiWATER: ASTER dataset

This dataset includes 12 scenes, covering the artificial oasis eco-hydrology experimental area of the Heihe River Basin, which were acquired on (yy-mm-dd) 2012-05-30, 2012-06-15, 2012-06-24, 2012-07-10, 2012-08-02, 2012-08-11, 2012-08-18, 2012-08-27, 2012-09-03, 2012-09-12, 2012-09-19, 2012-09-28. The data were all acquired around 12:00 (BJT) at Level 1A, i.e., without atmospheric and geometric correction. ASTER dataset was purchased from Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
