Field Spectroscopy Laboratory

About the Field Spectroscopy Laboratory

The Field Spectroscopy laboratory is a fully equipped dark room suitable for a variety of spectroradiometric experiments.


  • Dark room facility with possibility of artificial illumination at different view and zenith angle.
  • ASD FieldSpec 3 spectroradiometer, two hand held ASD spectroradiometers and a variety of spectralon panels for calibration of these instruments.
  • Two integrating spheres for measuring the diffuse reflectance of surfaces.
  • Multispectral satellite imagery requires ancillary information to perform atmospheric correction. The Field Spectroscopy laboratory has sun-photometers to determine the atmospheric optical depth accounting for the scattering and absorption caused by the atmosphere.


This facility allows for ground truthing of Satelite data.
