SAMPLE_DESCRIPTION:

Averaged spectral reflectance for an open forest of conifers, with unshadowed grassland vegetation between trees, located along Moss Creek, on the eastern rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone in Yellowstone
National Park. This average spectrum was computed from 153 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. Sample referenced in Kokaly et al. (2002).
