Getis Gi statistics, calculated using ENVI for a moving 3x3 windows (9 pixels, ~ 100 m), to permit visualization of the homogeneous regions. A cluster of pixels with high digital counts is indicated by largely positive Gi* values, while a cluster of pixels with low digital counts is indicated by largely negative Gi* values.

The first row are true color images. The second row are the fAPARcanopy images based on an empirical relationship between fAPARcanopy and NDVI, which is widely used. The cornfield is surrounded by forests. Corn was planted before day of year 195. The corn fAPARcanopy was saturated during its peak of growing season. For the surrounding forest, its fAPARcanopy saturated from late spring to summer.

You can see how different these 3 fAPARs are from fAPARcanopy. fAPARleaf also has some saturation issue. The cornfield and the surrounding forest have distinct fAPARchl and fAPARNPV seasonality. Before corn was planted, both fAPARchl and fAPARNPV were low. Corn was the greenest on day 231 and fAPARNPV was low. During the senescence period, fAPARchl decreased and fAPARNPV increased. The forest was the greenest on day 172. after that, fAPARchl gradually decreased and fAPARNPV increased. fAPARNPV on days 190 -231 kept same.
For the MODIS observations over the forest site, here is the comparison between Light Use efficiency at chlorphyll level and the narrow band MODIS PRI. The R2 is 0.78, very nice correlation.
This raises issues that we will explain using the leaf/canopy models
R dynamics at Mongu are a result of biophysical stress caused by the seasonal rainfall, which is reinforced by the CO 2 flux.

Results-Conclusions• A common (global) spectral approach appears feasible. To derive it we need: – the capability of collecting hyperspectral observations of globally-distributed sites representing a variety of vegetation types – the ability to make repeated measurements of each site – Hyperion on EO-1 can provide data for these studies• The strongest relationships use continuous spectra, narrow wavelength bands, and/or derivative parameters• Multiple algorithms and/or band combinations are effective

EO-1 Hyperion Spectral Bio-Indicator of GEP/NEPBest Correlation to CO2 Uptake for Multiple Flux Sites † NEP – net ecosystem production, GEP – gross ecosystem production ‡ L – linear, NL – non-linear Campbell et al. 2012 2012 William Nordberg Award 44
Findings• In 3 vastly different ecosystems, continuous reflectance data and a variety of spectral parameters, were correlated well to CO2 flux parameters (e.g. NEP, GEE, etc.). Imaging spectrometry provides spatial distribution maps of CO2 fluxes absorbed by the vegetation.• The bio-indicators with strongest relationships were calculated using continuous spectra, using numerous wavelengths associated with chlorophyll content and/or derivative parameters.• Common (global) spectral approach to trace vegetation function and estimate it’s CO2 sequestration ability is feasible. It requires: – a diverse spectral coverage, representative of the major ecosystem types, – spectral time series, to cover the dynamics within a cover type.
Remote Sensing of Fluxes Hyperion and Flux Towers• Hyperion on EO-1 provides us with two important capabilities: – the capability of collecting hyperspectral observations of globally-distributed sites, and – the ability to make repeated measurements of a site• Provides a dataset for testing and developing algorithms for global data products• The strongest relationships with carbon uptake parameters used continuous spectra, numerous wavelengths associated with chlorophyll content, and/or derivative parameters.• A common (global) spectral approach appears feasible. To derive it will require: – Diverse coverage, representing major ecosystem types, and – time series, to cover the dynamics within a cover type.
RecommendationsThese studies utilize data from the existing flux tower networkFor many HyspIRI products we will need more studies applying algorithms for a number of different landcover types - Use ground, aircraft, and satellite spectral reflectance data - Need to develop protocols for ground measurements of potential HyspIRI products - Need to establish network of sites measuring these products - These sites can grow into a HyspIRI cal/val network
EO-1 Future Plan• Present Matsu Compute Cloud functionality – Hyperion and ALI Level 1R processing – Hyperion and ALI Level 1 G processing – Web Coverage Processing Service (WCPS) – web service to rapidly create and execute new algorithms for ALI and Hyperion data and includes: • Atmospheric Correction • ALI Pan Sharpening • Flood water classifier for ALI – Namibia Flood Dashboard (mashup of ground and multiple satellite data and data products for floods)• Augment the Matsu Cloud - Automated co-registration of Hyperion (depending on funding availability) -Tile cutouts for Hyperion• Lunar Calibration Schemes• Intelligent Payload Module - High speed onboard processing for low latency products (target HyspIRI) - Hyperion L0, L2 to emulate future HyspIRI data - WCPS - upload algorithms in realtime to customize processing of EO-1 like data - Core Flight Executive (cFE) - CASPER – onboard planner used on EO-1 is part of testbed
Future Directions• Expand the tests over additional ecosystem types (rain forest, temperate and sub-arctic vegetation types);• Test additional spectral approaches (e. g. feature depth analysis)• Special Issue of IEEE JSTARS on EO-1 (Guest Ed., E.M. Middleton), early 2014. ? ? ? ? ?
