Abstract
The Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC) is conducting measurements in the visible, near-infrared and infrared spectral regions of selected ground targets in support to the Department of Energy Multispectral Thermal Imager (MTI) satellite. Radiometers have been used to retrieve surface temperature from water and land targets. Surface temperature measurements of land targets are often complicated by the wavelength dependent emissivity. Conical cavities have been employed on land targets to increase the surface effective emissivity and therefore the apparent surface temperature. Surface effective emissivity values near unity offer the opportunity for absolute surface temperature retrieval. The efficacy of conical cavities for absolute surface temperature retrievals was studied with a calibrated Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR). The research paper presents the results of surface temperature retrievals of targets with low emissivity values with the aid of conical cavities.
