SpecNet - Linking Optical Measurements with Flux Sampling
SpecNet is a network of sites and scientists using optical sampling to enhance remote sensing capabilities for biospheric monitoring.
SpecNet (Spectral Network), builds on the existing capabilities of the flux tower network (FLUXNET) by adding spectral measurements to existing flux tower sites at a range of ecosystems around the world. SpecNet is envisioned as a data-sharing cooperative, and new investigators are welcome. The hope is that by standardizing sampling protocols and data structure across sites, we can facilitate an understanding of factors controlling terrestrial carbon flux and provide information useful for modeling and validating emerging satellite data products (e.g. MODIS).
