Typical Areas for Study Using MISR: Properties of Dense Dark Vegatation
Oxbow bend in the Snake River: Dense dark vegetation and inland water cover vast areas of Earth, especially in the Northern Hemisphere, such as in this July 1994 scene of the Snake River in Oregon. Such areas warrant special study because of their climatic significance. MISR will simultaneously measure properties of such surfaces and of the atmospheric particles above them.
