20 October 1999 Considerations in atmospheric compensation of spectral image data
Author Affiliations +
Atmospheric emission, scattering, and photon absorption degrade spectral imagery data and reduce its utility. We report on the use of an atmospheric compensation code for the visible and near-infrared, based on MODTRAN 4, that includes spectral analysis, accounts for interference to a given pixel by adjacent pixels, and provides a polishing routine to clear residual atmospheric spectral features common to a group of pixels. A NASA/JPL AVIRIS data sample is analyzed.
