GHRC Publishes GOES-R PLT AVNG Dataset

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GOES-R PLT Field Campaign Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG) dataset. This dataset consists of radiance, reflectance, water phase, and navigation data collected by the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG) for the GOES-R Post Launch Test (PLT) field campaign. The GOES-R PLT field campaign took place from March to May of 2017 in support of post-launch L1B and L2+ product validation of the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM). AVIRIS-NG is an imaging spectrometer that measures reflected radiance at 5 nm intervals in the Visible/Short-Wave Infrared (VSWIR) spectral range from 380-2,510 nm. AVIRIS-NG flew onboard the NASA ER-2 high-altitude aircraft during the GOES-R PLT field campaign. Data files in ASCII and BINARY formats are available for March 23 and 28, 2017. It should be noted that the ER-2 aircraft did not operate each day of the campaign; therefore, AVIRIS-NG data are only available on aircraft flight days.
