  • TOPography EXperiment (TOPEX) for ocean circulation (otherwise known as Poseidon) was launched on August 10, 1992 and was a joint satellite mission between NASA, the U.S. space agency, and CNES, the French space agency, to map ocean surface topography. The first major oceanographic research vessel to sail into space, TOPEX/Poseidon helped revolutionise oceanography by proving the value of satellite ocean observations. This dataset contains monthly means on a 1x1 latitude/longitude grid for 12 years (1993-2004). The data contains the following parameters: wind speed, squared wind speed, cubed wind speed, wind speed * significant wave height, significant wave height, 1/sigma0(Ku) and gas transfer velocity. TOPEX/Poseidon was a joint mission from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the U.S. space agency and the French space agency. The dataset was produced by Fangohr, S. and D.K. Woolf of SOCS, as part of the NERC programme's Centre for observation of Air-Sea Interactions and FluXes (CASIX) and National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO).

  • Land Surface Temperature (LST) Level 2 data products (UOL_LST_2P) from the Advanced Along Track Scanning Radiometer (AATSR) produced by the University of Leicester. The data consists of a Level 2 1km resolution AATSR-orbit based product at a pre-defined set of spatial and temporal resolutions. The product provide AATSR-derived land surface temperature data and its associated uncertainty, as wall as additional auxiliary information. Level 2 products were produced under contract to the European Space Agency and constitute part of the official (A)ATSR multimission product from version 3 of that dataset. Funding from NERC and the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) also helped in the development of this product and enabled the production of the derived Level 3 products. Both products are NetCDF formatted. For further information on the formats of each of the products please see their product user guides.

  • As part of the 2006 Field Campaign of the Network for Calibration and Validation of EO data (NCAVEO), an Intergraph Z/I Imaging Digital Mapping Camera (DMC) was used to collect data in 4 spectral bands in the visible and near infrared, at a nominal ground resolution of 65cm. The Chilbolton site was flown over on the 9th June 2006 by the Ordnance Survey, resulting in 84 strips captured over the Area of Interest (2048 x 3072) with 60% overlap along the track. The data was orthorectified to the British National Grid using photogrammetric methods.

  • The Airborne Research & Survey Facility (ARSF, formerly Airborne Remote Sensing Facility) is managed by NERC Scientific Services and Programme Management. It provides the UK environmental science community, and other potential users, with the means to obtain remotely-sensed data in support of research, survey and monitoring programmes. The ARSF is a unique service providing environmental researchers, engineers and surveyors with synoptic analogue and digital imagery of high spatial and spectral resolution.The NEODC holds the entire archive of Airborne Thematic Mapper (ATM) and Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) data acquired by the NERC ARSF. High-resolution scanned digital versions of the entire collection of analogue photographs are now also available as well as selected LiDAR-derived elevation and terrain models for selected sites flown using the sensor.

Led by: Dr. Andrew Russell, School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, Newcastle University, Daysh Building, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RU. Location: SE Iceland.

  • Leaf Area Index (LAI) measurements were made in three fields near Chilbolton, as part of the Network for Calibration and Validation of Earth Observation data (NCAVEO) 2006 Field Campaign. Measurements were carried out over 14-15 June 2006 in fields Brockley (spring barley), Big Croft (oil seed rape) and Rickyard (winter wheat), each of which were planted with different crop types. LAI measurements were made with the LAI2000 instrument loaned from INRA, France (Inst. Ref: N4431), including shadow cap (180 degrees) and measurement configuration: one top of canopy reading (reading A in files) followed by one bottom of canopy (reading B in files). Within the main sensor the LAI2000 instrument has five separate silicon detectors arranged in concentric rings. When radiation is projected onto the detector each ring sees a different range of zenith angles, up to a maximum 74º field of view. There is no response at zenith angles between 74º and 90º. The sensor is filtered to respond only to radiation below 490nm to minimise the impact of leaf reflectance and transmittance on measured values. The outputs of the five detectors were measured simultaneously for each above or below canopy measurement. Five sample points were located within tramlines in each field and five 10 metre long transects were then set-up, centred on each of these points. 10 measurements were made at each flag.
