The EOS Land Validation Core Sites

Use the map below to go to detailed information and data access for a particular site.

The EOS Land Validation Core Sites are intended as a focus for land product validation over a range of biome types. The Core Sites represents consensus amongst the instrument teams and validation investigators, developed through a number of meetings and discussions.  Most of the Core Sites build on an existing program of long-term measurements and have an infrastructure to support in situ measurements (Morisette et al., 2002).  Each site has a point of contact responsible for overall validation coordination at the sites.
Although these sites are not intended to meet all EOS needs, they provide a focus for satellite, aircraft, and ground data collection and land product validation, and are sites for which scientists can readily access in situ and EOS instrument data.  Note that the EOS instrument vicarious calibration test site needs will be coordinated by the MODIS Calibration Discipline Group and are not included as part of the EOS Land Validation Core Sites.
The concept for the "EOS Land Validation Core Sites" grew out of a Science Working group for the AM Platform (SWAMP) Land Validation Coordination meeting in December 1997 (Justice et al., 1998).
