SAMPLE_DESCRIPTION:

Averaged spectral reflectance for an aspen stand located in the Crystal Creek area of the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. This average spectrum was computed from 15 pixels of radiative-transfer-ground-calibrated AVIRIS data.  AVIRIS data were collected on August 6, 1996, at approximately 11:10 am Local Time.  AVIRIS channels 1-4, 32-33, 43, 59-62, 81-84, 95-97, 106-113, 154-167, 173-175, and 222-224 were deleted due to residual atmospheric effects, poor instrument response, and redundancy where detectors overlap. Channel 6 was deleted due to spurious detector response.  Sample referenced in Kokaly et al. (2002).
