TITLE: Whitebark-Pine YNP-WB-2 DESCRIPT

DOCUMENTATION_FORMAT: Plant

SAMPLE_ID: YNP-WB-2

PLANT_TYPE: Tree

PLANT: Whitebark Pine

LATIN_NAME: Pinus albicaulis

COLLECTION_LOCALITY: Western slope of Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA.

ORIGINAL_DONOR: R.Kokaly

SAMPLE_DESCRIPTION:

Averaged spectral reflectance for a conifer forest dominated by whitebark pine located on the western slope of Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park. Average computed from 34 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).
