NOAA/GML SURFRAD Spectral Albedo, NDVI, ISS Site

This dataset contains spectral shortwave albedo, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) collected at the NCAR EOL ISS site for the Chequamegon Heterogeneous Ecosystem Energy-balance Study Enabled by a High-density Extensive Array of Detectors (CHEESEHEAD) Field Project. See file README.cheese.albedo for more information. Spectral albedo is obtained with a Multifilter Rotating Shadowband Radiometer (MFRSR) operating in standard fashion, and a MFRSR head mounted on a tower (MFR10) at ~9 m above the surface for most sites. Spectral albedo values are calculated from instantaneous measurements taken every 20 seconds.
