Abstract

Field spectrometry is emerging as an important tool in the study of the dynamics of the biosphere and atmosphere. Large amounts of data are now collected from spectrometers mounted on towers, robotic trams and other platforms. These data are crucial for verifying not only the optical data captured by satellites and airborne systems but also to validate the flux measurements that track ecosystem-atmosphere gas exchanges, the "breathing of the planet" critical to regulating our atmosphere and climate. There is a need for readily available systems for the management, processing and analysis of field spectrometry data. In this paper we present SALSA, a software system for the management, processing and analysis of field spectrometry data that also provides a platform for linking optical data to flux measurements. SALSA is demonstrated using real data collected from multiple research sites.
