An Overview of NEON's Airborne Remote Sensing Infrastructure and Collection Plans
Airborne remote sensing occupies a unique role within the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). The airborne data are designed to augment instrumented and observational data collected at the NEON sites and enable scaling to continental scales. The NEON sites necessarily vary significantly in their diversity and location. These traits impact how the airborne data are collected, and the sensors are configured for a particular site. This talk with give an overview of the NEON airborne sensors, the flight planning, and the collection process. Finally, a number of the processing algorithms and a some of the resulting data products are introduced.
