First ISLSCP Field Experiment Follow-On : The First ISLSCP (International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project) Field Experiment (FIFE) project conducted field studies on a prairie site in Kansas from 1987 to 1989. The FIFE Follow-on work included additional analyses of data collected during the initial field campaigns and additional field measurements. The objectives of both FIFE and FIFE Follow-on were to understand the biophysical processes controlling the fluxes of radiation, moisture, and carbon dioxide between the land surface and the atmosphere, and to develop remote-sensing methodologies for observing these processes.
