ACE-1: Aircraft C-130 Ocean Color Data (Porter)


This dataset consists of measurements of upwelling radiance made from the C-130 aircraft during ACE-1. The data was collected with a spectrophotometer covering the range from 311 to 1132 nm. Users interested in studying cloud reflectance with this data (this was not the original goal of the experiment) should contact the PI for further considerations on this matter (see contact information above).
