Presentation Transcript
instructions
Instructions
  • Priorities for data products & their stewardship
  • Scientific directions and next challenges
  • Effective use of airborne instruments and platforms
    • Next major field campaign
  • How to provide feedback to NASA from the TE community
results
Results
  • 28+ participants in the breakout group
  • Six major areas of feedback for the TE program
  • We voted to prioritize the order
    • Everyone got 2 votes!
feedback
Feedback
  • (1) Develop standards for critical TE measurements (14 votes)
  • Specifically:
    • Consistency of classification taxonomy
      • Global consistency of classes in routine mapping
      • Include disturbances in classification
    • Measure functional types AND their mixes
      • Spectral mixture analysis, e.g. savannas
      • Subcanopy components, lichens, moss, herb layer
  • Recommendation: Convene a working group (or groups) to establish the necessary classification taxonomy for TE

Continued…
  • (2) Support airborne data collection (11 votes)
    • Necessary to test potential or unscoped technologies
    • Test novel observation strategies
    • Upscaling from field to satellite measurements
  • (3 – tie) Support ground data collection (8)
    • Measurement networks: need for a long-term, GLOBAL network for cal/val, allometry (note NEON)
    • Common survey methodologies
    • Maintained and updated
    • Recommendation: working group
and continued
And continued…..
  • (3 – tie) Google-ize archival data (8 votes)
    • Modernize and make accessible data not currently in USGS (e.g., AVIRIS, LVIS, but also non-NASA data too?)
  • (5 - tie) MODIS-ize Landsat (7 votes)
    • Idea has multiple meanings…..
    • Necessity of data continuity from MODIS, i.e., fine temporal resolution and similar spectral res.
    • Aim for finer resolution (constellation of Landsats?)
  • (5 – tie) Additional measurement types (7 votes)
    • INSAR, L-band (aerial/space), P-band SAR
