During the Skylab missions detailed ground measurements of atmospheric effects and target characteristics, at selected targets, were made in order to quantitatively evaluate the performance of the Earth Resource Experiment Package (EREP) remote sensors. The ground measurements consisted of absolute measurements of: (1) incident total (global, 180 F.O.V.) solar irradiance 400 to 1300 nm; (2) diffuse (scattered) sky irradiance (180° F.O.V.) - 400 to1300 nm; (3) normal incident direct solar beam irradiance - 400 to 1300 nm; (4) reflected solar target radiance - ERTS bands*; (5) target reflectivity - 400 to 1300 nm and ERTS bands; (6) target thermal (8 to 14 μm) brightness temperature; and (7) atmospheric temperature and humidity - profiles from ground level to 15,000 ft.
