OT Collection Name: Eel River Critical Zone Observatory July 2014 Lidar Survey
Short Name: CA14_Dietrich_A, CA14_Dietrich_B, CA14_Dietrich_G
Collection Platform: Airborne Lidar
The requested survey areas consisted of a 1 km wide corridor, running for approximately 115 km along the Eel river and a 57.1 square km polygon location 145 km west of Chico, CA.
This survey was performed with 3 airborne remote sensing mapping systems. Two of these systems are LiDAR systems: 1) Optech Gemini Airborne Laser Terrain Mapper (ALTM) (serial # 06SEN195) which is an infrared laser mapping sensor and 2) Optech Aquarius ALTM (serial # 11SEN279) which is a hybrid laser mapping system as it collects simultaneous land and shallow water-depth measurements. It operates in the green spectrum, thus enabling it to penetrate water. These two LiDAR mapping systems along with an Optech 12-bit full waveform digitizer were mounted consecutively in a twin-engine Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain (Tail Number N154WW).
The third airborne sensor was for Hyperspectral imaging. This portion of the survey was performed with a CASI-1500 - a push broom type hyperspectral imaging sensor sold by ITRES. It is mounted on a vibration isolated mount together with the Gemini LIDAR sensor. Hyperspectral data are available via this link.
