Multispectral, multialtitude observations of the KUREX-91 experiment site from a helicopter platformAn eight-channel modular multiband radiometer, a 252-channel SE-590 spectroradiometer, and a single-channel infrared thermometer were mounted in a nadir-looking attitude on a Soviet MI-8 helicopter to collect visible, infrared, and thermal measurements of the KUREX-91 study area. These measurements were coincident with surface, other airborne, and spaceborne measurements collected during the July 1991 field campaign. The helicopter missions included both hovers and slow-flight transects over specific sites. Multiple altitude flights over several of the study sites were also made. Study sites included grasslands, forest stands, and agricultural fields. Data collection was executed so that observations from the multispectral devices could be compared with multispectral and biophysical observations made on the surface as well as with multispectral observations from other airborne and spaceborne systems. A preliminary analysis of multispectral and multialtitude data of several study sites is presented.
