The Classic AVIRIS (AVIRIS-C) is deployed to Marine Corps Base Hawaii on Oahu with other NASA ER-2. The campaign is the HyspIRI Airborne Preparatory Campaign for Volcanos and Coral Reefs. The campaign is scheduled to complete on March 3. The campaign started with 90 flight hours, and to date over 55 hours have been flown.

The Classic Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-C) continues to collect data as part of the HyspIRI Airborne Campaign in Hawaii. There have been four flights over the past week, both over the volcanos and coral reefs. Flights continue this week, and there will be a media day on 8 Feb at Marine Corps Base Hawaii to give an overview of the campaign.
The Classic Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-C) is currently with the NASA Armstrong ER-2 to Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Oahu. AVIRIS-C is collecting data for the HyspIRI Tropics Preparatory Airborne Campaign, and is collecting data over Volcanos and Coral Reefs. The last week has been very successful, and there was a coordinated under-flight of ASTER on Terra for day and night flights on January 27 and 28
The next generation Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer completed the Dynamic Aviation King Air Campaign. The campaign was successful with flights for the California Methane Survey, California Delta Survey, Coastal Louisiana RTD Effort, Forest Canopy Study in the upper Mid-West, and AVIRIS-NG Calibration and Validation flights.
The next generation Airborne and Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-NG) is collecting data along the Gulf Coast. There have been several successful collections to date, imaging during both low and high tide events.
The next generation Airborne Visible Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-Ng) deployed last week to KSC for flights over the Spacex Falcon 9 debris location. Upon completion of the flights in Florida, the aircraft returned to Burbank to resume the California Methane Survey.
Last week the next generation Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-ng) was continuing flights for the California Methane Campaign on the Dynamic Aviation King Air aircraft. Over the weekend there was a vicarious calibration experiment over the Ivanpah Playa at the CA and NV border as part of the ongoing AVIRIS calibration and validation efforts. A team from JPL was deployed to make in-situ surface spectral measurements along with atmospheric column measurements.
The next generation Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-ng) has been collecting data for the California Methane Survey. There have been flights over targets in the Southern California region and the San Joaquin Valley. A real time detection algorithm has been deployed on the flight computer for identifying the concentration of methane plumes. The flights will continue in CA through October 12, at which point the AVIRIS-ng and the King Air will deploy to New Orleans for flights on the gulf coast with UAVSAR and the ASO.
To date NASA AVIRIS-NG imaging spectroscopy measurements have been acquired for 51 of 57 planned sites (>280 flight lines). Water quality imaging spectrometer measurements of the Ganges (site 44) were acquired on the February 23. AVIRIS-NG with the aircraft is currently collecting data for a mangrove ecosystem site near Kolkatta.
AVIRIS NG continues the successful campaign in India. Data has been collected in the Ahemdabad region. The JPL team continues to work with ISRO on data transfer to JPL.
