SAMPLE_DESCRIPTION:

Averaged spectral reflectance for a sedge marsh located on the northern shore of Swan Lake, in the Gardner’s Hole area of Yellowstone National Park. This average spectrum was computed from 183 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).
