Target:

            Lake Argyle is a very large man-made lake in the Kimberley region of Australia. For Hyperspectral Task purposes, it is serves as a dark target in contrast to Tinga Tingana (bright target) and has a continuously reading CIMEL aerosol and atmosphere monitoring station in place as well as a Nephelometer. At both  Lake Argyle and Tinga Tingana it is proposed to use Hyperion and LEISA to investigate aerosols and atmospheric correction. This site will be characterized optically and is planned to be flown by a Hyperspectral instrument (casi or HyMap). Lake Argyle is well served with an airstrip and research facilities.
