# @Institute: Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea
# @Data: Cheorwon Rice Paddy 30 minute averaging reflectance data (HCRF, BHR)
# @version: 0.1
# @FileTree
# @ scaling factor: 0.0001
# @ description: L2 represents the reflectance factor (HCRF: Hemispherical-Conical Reflectance Factor, BHR: Bi-Hemispherical Reflectance). Each row of the table represents datetime [YYYY-mm-dd HH:MM:SS], and each column represents wavelength [nm]. Radiometric and wavelength calibration were conducted using an integrating sphere and a wavelength light source on May 11, 2023. During the DN to Signal processing, data filtering, outlier removal, and smoothing were not conducted. If you would like to process the raw data yourself, please let us know. We will share the observed raw data and the light source measurement data.
