Summary of AHSPECT field experiment

Under the framework of EUFAR’s transnational access programme, the research campaign AHSPECT carried out airborne measurements over agro-forestry areas in southwestern France, along with intercomparisons using ground-based measurements at the landscape scale for the assessment of agricultural health, physiology and satellite products validation.

The AHSPECT field experiment comprises two components:

  • an airborne campaign on two different dates (23 June & October 2015) using NERC/ARSF’s Dornier DO228 aircraft with a hyperspectral optical camera (FENIX), a thermical (OWL) camera plus a lidar mounted onboard.
  • a ground campaign over anchor stations to characterise the vegetation during the flight overpasses.
