This "image cube" from JPL's Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) shows the volume of data returned by the instrument. AVIRIS acquired the data on August 20, 1992 when it was flown on a NASA ER-2 plane at an altitude of 20,000 meters (65,000 feet) over Moffett Field, California, at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay.

 

 

 

 

The top of the cube is a false-color image made to accentuate the structure in the water and evaporation ponds on the right. Also visible on the top of the cube is the Moffett Field airport.

The sides of the cube are slices showing the edges of the top in all 224 of the AVIRIS spectral channels. The tops of the sides are in the visible part of the spectrum (wavelength of 400 nanometers), and the bottoms are in the infrared (2,500 nanometers). The sides are pseudo-color, ranging from black and blue (low response) to red (high response).

 

 

 

Of particular interest is the small region of high response in the upper right corner of the larger side. This response is in the red part of the visible spectrum (about 700 nanometers), and is due to the presence of 1-centimeter-long (half-inch) red brine shrimp in the evaporation pond.
