The Superior National Forest (SNF) project was a NASA-led campaign. It focused on evaluating the usefulness of remote sensing techniques in measuring biophysical parameters such as Leaf Area Index (LAI) and Net Primary Productivity (NPP) in boreal forests. SNF occurred in the summer and early fall of both 1983 and 1984 in the Superior National Forest, which is located near Ely, Minnesota. NASA’s C-130 aircraft and its Bell-jet Ranger helicopter were used in conjunction with JSC’s Cary-14 instrument to either retrieve or analyze samples taken from the forest. SNF was funded by the NASA HQ Land Processes Branch.
