ISLSCP FIELD EXPERIMENT


Item #d93mar20

J. Geophys. Res., 97(D17), Nov. 30, 1992, contains 62 papers describing results from the First International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Field Experiment (FIFE), conducted from 1987 through 1989 in the state of Kansas. The objectives of FIFE, an international, interdisciplinary project, are to understand the role of biology in controlling the interactions between the atmosphere and the vegetated land surface, and to investigate the use of satellite observations to infer climatologically significant land surface parameters. Papers are grouped under the headings Atmospheric Boundary Layer, Surface Flux (including CO2), Surface Radiances and Biology, Soil Moisture, and Integrative Science. Overview and summary papers by P.J. Sellars et al. (NASA-Goddard, Greenbelt MD 20771) open and conclude, respectively, the collection. (Pub. by AGU (American Geophysical Union), 2000 Florida Ave. NW, Washington DC 20009.)
