15 November 1993 NOAA-11 channels 1 and 2 calibration in the SPACE software
Author Affiliations +
The software SPACE, developed at JRC, Ispra, Italy, processes on a day-by-day basis the AVHRR images over Europe to forecast crop production which requires updated calibration of channels 1 and 2. The most suitable way to update calibration is to implement specific subroutines with, after identification and characterization, three Saharan desertic sites for inter-temporal calibration and the sunglint off-shore of Europe for an interband calibration. The paper also adresses the way to obtain absolute calibration and raises the problem of potential spectral shift of the sensor.
