Abstract
This paper focused on the application of effective atmospheric correction algorithm for assessing the atmospheric pollution based on the determined aerosol optical thickness. Field spectro-radiometers such as GER 1500 and HR-1024 have been used to retrieve the ground reflectance values of certain proposed calibration targets. Sun-photometers (MICROTOPS II) have been used to measure the aerosol optical thickness. Retrieved aerosol optical thickness from satellite images have been directly compared with the values found from the sun-photometer measurements as well those found from the visibility data obtained during the satellite overpass. The determined aerosol optical thickness obtained from the atmospheric path radiance component and those found from ground measurements (sun-photometer and meteorological data) acquired during the satellite overpass show very high correlations after regression analysis application.
