Field Measurements

Field Measurements

These members of the MISR team are preparing to make field measurements at Lunar Lake, Nevada, early on the morning of June 5, 1996. Here they are working on a portable instrument that can measure light reflected by the surface in many color bands and at multiple view angles. In the course of the day, they carried this instrument around the test site in a backpack, taking hundreds of images of the surface. During this experiment, they also used instruments that measure sunlight and skylight. Independent field measurements such as these will be used to validate and confirm the data acquired by the spaceborne MISR instrument and the airborne AirMISR instrument.
