12 October 1988 Role Of Calibration In Remote Sensing For The Earth Observing System
Author Affiliations +
The role of calibration for the Earth Observing System is identified as supporting the scientific requirements of the mission. The difference between this and other missions is identified as long time series, global data sets suitable for multidisciplinary analysis. Instrument calibration must be responsive to these issues in Eos. This document deals with the management aspects of achieving the required calibration. The approach is detailed in the NASA Eos Announcement of Opportunity, and insight is provided on how the major components of the management approach were developed. Case Studies highlighting the application of these approaches are summarized to support the inclusion of many of the components. The technical aspects of reaching the Eos calibration goals are not addressed here.
