90% of the United States began the year of 2018 with freezing temperatures.
The Northeast has recently experienced a massive winter snowstorm, referred to as a “bomb cyclone“. Record cold temperatures, not felt since 1884, are being experienced in Boston. Beyond New England, a majority of the rest of the country is also being affected by the brutal cold; this includes Texas, Georgia, and Florida, even.
Why is this happening? And, why is this happening now? Could it have something to do with climate change?

In the realm of earth observation and as satellite imagery and remote sensing become more popular, it can still be confusing to determine how to use or interpret imagery to solve real problems.
When is an image not just an image?
If you think about the photos you take with a camera, what you see is what you get. A color photo combines red, green and blue reflected light in the same way that our eyes capture reflected light, so it looks like a realistic version of what we would see if …

The ASD FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res NG provides enhanced spectral resolution to support accurate calibration and image classification analysis.
Higher resolution hyperspectral sensors yield greater precision for remote sensing classification applications, producing more information from every pixel generated in an image than ever before. In order to take advantage of the full potential of these sensors, measurements from ground-based instrumentation need to meet or exceed the sensor’s spectral resolution. In the absence of this resolution equality, data are interpolated during post-processing; as a result, vital spectral information can be smoothed and lost.
The enhanced spectral resolution …

[14 Nov 2017 | ]

This November, the ASD webinar focuses on hyperspectral imaging, near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), and multivariate calibration models (i.e. chemometrics), featuring ASD’s FieldSpec® 4 Hi-Res NG Spectroradiometer.

In this webinar, you will learn:

How the combination of hyperspectral imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), and multivariate calibration algorithms (i.e. chemometrics), enables quantitative mapping of properties of the Earth’s surface
The data that ground-based reflectance measurements of materials can provide for remote sensing applications
How to apply quantitative chemometric calibrations to hyperspectral image data
Examples of successful applications

November’s ASD webinar speaker is Dr. Brian Curtiss; Brian is one of …

ASD has long been the gold standard in field spectroradiometers. ASD pioneered the science of field spectroscopy over 25 years ago and continues to lead the industry with the world’s most trusted field-portable UV/Vis/NIR/SWIR spectroradiometers covering the full solar reflected spectrum.
ASD’s spectroradiometers and spectrometers are portable and deliver fast and accurate spectral measurements. These spectral measurements act as fingerprints, providing important data that leads to solutions in a variety of applications, such as:

Atmospheric research
Forestry, ecology and plant physiology studies
Light energy measurements
Spectroradiometric calibrations
Ingredient testing for dietary supplements and natural products
Lipid, protein …
