Dataset Information

Site ID: PA-SLZ

Site Name: Bosque Protector San Lorenzo (Fort Sherman)

Variables: Demography; Remote sensing

Date Range: Feb. 19, 2018 - Feb. 22, 2018

Description: Canopy reflectance spectra of 37 trees were measured by using the San Lorenzo canopy crane to navigate over the top of each tree. Data were recorded between 10 am and 2 pm, with 20–50 measurements for each tree. The canopy structure for each crown was recorded using a digital camera. Leaf-level reflectance and leaf demographic composition (age class) was recorded in detail for a > 0.5 meter branch sampled from each canopy tree (corresponding to the position where canopy spectra were measured). This dataset includes spectral measurements, sample details and pdf summaries containing low resolution photographs. Full resolution images (total 2 GB) are available in the related dataset, "Leaf-to-canopy spectral reflectance photographs, Feb2018, PA-SLZ: Panama".

QA/QC: Provisional QA-QC

QA/QC Method: QA/QC complete on sample information. Processed spectra results are preliminary. Complete spectral data is included for users to process to suit research.
