PRISM – Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer

Thursday, January 16, 2014

The Portable Remote Imaging Spectrometer (PRISM) has been successfully ferried to the Greater Florida Bay area and has begun science flights. An initial quick-look image of Florida sea grass is reproduced below; note the absence of visible artifacts, such as striping, that appear even before imaging processing.

This benthic vegetation investigation is headed by Professor Heidi Dierssen of the University of Connecticut and includes in-situ measurements.
