SPRUCE: Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Vegetation Communities in SPRUCE Experimental Plots, 2016

This data set consists of reflectance observations from hyperspectral remote sensing of the vegetation communities in SPRUCE experimental study plots located in the S1-Bog. Community vegetation plots in ten chambered treatment plots (6, 19, 11, 20, 4, 13, 8, 16, 10, 17) and 3 unchambered ambient plots (7, 14, 21) were scanned. Spectral data were collected on 22 September 2016 under clear sky conditions beginning at 1:00 p.m. local time. Although it was past peak growing season, senescence had only just begun at the site, and experimentally warmed plots were still near peak growing conditions.
