GOES-R PLT Surface Radiance Ivanpah dataset published

The NASA Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC published the GOES-R PLT Surface Radiance Ivanpah dataset. This dataset consists of surface reflectance and total optical depth data measured at Ivanpah Playa, Nevada during the GOES-R Post Launch Test (PLT) field campaign. The atmospheric measurements were made using an Automated Solar Radiometer (ASR), which tracks the sun throughout the day. Surface reflectance measurements were made using an ASD portable spectroradiometer and Spectralon reference panel. 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 Image (ABI) and the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM). The main goal of this dataset is to provide an independent validation of the AVIRIS-NG airborne instrument calibration. Data files in Excel format and browse imagery files in JPEG and PNG formats are only available for March 23 and March 28, 2017.
