Multispectral satellite image data from the upper Sacramento River in northern California, October 18, 2017

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Multispectral satellite image data from the upper Sacramento River in northern California were acquired on October 18, 2017, to support research on remote sensing of rivers, particularly retrieval of water depth, and to facilitate efforts to characterize salmon habitat conditions and geomorphic change along the upper Sacramento River. These data were collected by the WorldView-3 (WV3) satellite, operated by DigitalGlobe and obtained through the EnhancedView license program administered by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA); the image data remain copyright of DigitalGlobe (2018). DigitalGlobe performed initial radiometric and geometric processing of the image. The data were acquired from the WorldView-3 satellite from an orbit with an altitude of 617 km and have a spatial resolution (pixel size) of 1.36 m. The data set consists of 8 spectral bands spanning the visible and near infrared wavelength range from 400-954 nanometers. The image pixel values represent raw digital counts and conversion to radiance, atmospheric correction, and reflectance retrieval have not been performed for the image included in this data release. The image is in a GeoTIFF format with pixel values stored as 16-bit unsigned integers. The image provided in this data release is a subset focused on the reach of the Sacramento River where it is joined by its tributary Cottonwood Creek. Supporting field data from this reach were collected in coordination with the acquisition of the remotely sensed data.
